From both datasets a very accurate digital elevation
model (DEM) can be derived. This laser-DEM can also
be filtered and used for a variety of GIS-applications
like flood plane modelling, determining the height of
power lines, water management such as hydrological and
drainage studies and for 3D city models.
Aerodata can execute LiDAR (laser scanning) missions
in combination with a digital photo camera, in which
case flying is restricted to day-time missions.
When only flying the LiDAR system, missions can be
flown during night-time thus making use of an extended
time-window with most stable atmospheric conditions
