WALIS: New Program to Expand, Enhance Use of LiDAR Sensing Technology

Researchers at Oregon State University have developed a new system that will enable highway construction engineers in the field to immediately analyse soil movements caused by active landslides and erosion and use the powerful tool of LiDAR to better assess and deal with them.

The advance, outlined by the Geological Society of America, is just one of the latest innovations with this laser technology, the use of which has mushroomed in recent years in the study of everything from earthquakes and tsunamis to beach erosion and road construction.

The new computer program announced by OSU engineers is already being used to study soil movements at several landslides or trouble spots on the Oregon coast, and has promise to improve the use of LiDAR in the field, quickly and efficiently, by trained engineers.
