Over the past decade new automated data acquisition technologies have emerged.
Under the classification of “imaging sensors”, such technologies include digital aerial photography, high-resolution satellite imaging systems, space-borne and airborne interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) and airborne laser scanning (LiDAR).
Moreover, such new technologies have not been restricted to aerial and space platforms, as we are seeing broader application of terrestrial imaging and laser scanning within mainstream surveying, mapping and GIS.
These data acquisition systems produce a wealth of primary data that require extensive processing in order to generate information products.
The program has three themes
Mobile Mapping people sml This Project researches techniques and algorithms for the detection, recognition and analysis of low-level and high-level features from mobile mapping data along urban and rural transport corridors.
Building detection Aitkenvale Qld This research uses both airborne imagery and LiDAR point clouds for feature extraction. The first significant deliverable will be a process to metrically combine the imagery and LiDAR point clouds to form accurate...
This Project will produce tools and procedures to auto-generate landscape level woody vegetation features (ie spatial layers) from field and remote sensing woody vegetation data.
pretty remote sensing scans graphic The Inter-governmental Committee on Survey and Mapping (ICSM) recognised the need for standardisation of the acquisition of elevation data, particularly LiDAR, and produced the ICSM LiDAR Acquisition Specifications and Tender Template (ICSM...
