Single-Photon LiDAR Proven for Forest Mapping

Single-photon LiDAR has the potential to totally upend the business of airborne LiDAR collection. It promises this disruption by collecting much faster (numbers reach as high as 30x the speed of traditional LiDAR) and in much greater density. This could make airborne LiDAR collection fast and affordable, so much so that we may be able to map very large areas on a frequency that approaches continuous capture. The implications for commercial work and even carbon-measurement are huge. Read more at SPAR 3D.
