tremendous and the availability of sensors to capture that data increases along with the consumer
|Avoid Incidents with Incidence
When collecting or using LIDAR data, the location of the scanner/sensor relative to the
object of interest and the geometry of the object itself can influence the ability to receive
returns from laser pulses. These factors can also affect the resulting accuracies of the acquired
points. This ....
