This year Monroe County flew LiDAR. In anticipation of future distribution and utilization, Justin discussed the basics of LiDAR. He focused on what LiDAR is, how its collected, differences in sensors, and what the deliverable look like. He also presented an example of how to process LiDAR and some of its early uses. There was also a glimpse into future projects planned at Monroe County utilizing LiDAR including flood models and 3D modeling.
