Topographic Laser Ranging and Scanning: Principles and Processing, Second Edition (Hardback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


"This book is a must-have resource for students, educators and users of LiDAR data. Comprehensive in scope and newly updated, the book is a key reference for all aspects of LiDAR. This masterful compilation, written by the leaders in the field, captures the latest developments in the rapidly growing field of laser ranging and scanning."

-Timothy A. Warner, West Virginia University, USA

"With the significant recent developments in LiDAR technology, such as single-photon and Geiger-mode LiDAR, the publication of this substantially updated Second Edition is a welcome addition to the geomatics literature. Descriptions of applications have been expanded to cover recent technological developments such as integrated mobile mapping systems and sensors mounted upon unmanned aerial systems, 3D building extraction and modelling, and the application of LiDAR for forest inventory and management... an ideal textbook, as well as a valuable reference source for researchers and practitioners of LiDAR technology."

-Clive S. Fraser, University of Melbourne, Australia

"There are few in-depth references on this important source of geospatial data, and this text fills an important void. It will be a seminal resource for new professionals entering the field and for seasoned professionals seeking to keep their knowledge current. As a remote sensing educator at a leading university, I consider this publication to be an essential addition to the library of any serious student or practitioner in the geospatial field."

-Karen Schuckman, Pennsylvania State University, USA

"This volume, like its predecessor, provides ample graphics, carefully tailored to clearly illustrate key concepts presented by the text. It is effectively organized, concise, and clearly presented with ample references, forming a valuable asset to prepare analysts in all aspects of LiDAR systems."

-Jim Campbell, Virginia Tech, USA

New in the Second Edition:

A comprehensive array of new laser ranging and scanning technologies.

Developments in LiDAR data format and processing techniques.

Regrouping of surface modeling, representations and reconstruction.

Enhanced discussions on the principles and fundamentals beyond small-footprint pulsed laser systems and new application examples.

Many new examples and illustrations.

Jie Shan received his PhD in photogrammetry and remote sensing from Wuhan University, China. Since then he has worked as faculty at universities in China, Sweden, and the United States, and has been a research fellow in Germany. Currently, he is an associate professor in geomatics engineering at the school of Civil Engineering of Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, where he teaches subjects in photogrammetry and remote sensing, and geospatial information science and technology. His research interests are digital mapping, geospatial data mining, and urban modeling. He is a recipient of multiple academic awards and author/coauthor of over 100 scientific papers. Charles K. Toth has PhDs in electrical engineering and geoinformation science from the University of Budapest, Budapest, Hungary, and is currently a senior research scientist with the Ohio State University Center for Mapping. His research expertise covers broad areas of 2D/3D signal processing, spatial information systems, airborne imaging, surface extraction and modeling, integrating and calibrating of multisensor systems, multisensory geospatial data acquisition systems, and mobile mapping technology. His references are represented by over 150 scientific/technical papers.
