Airborne LIDAR, where LIDAR stands for Light Detection Ranging, is technology that is used for measuring distance. It uses an optical remote sensing technique that illuminates measuring object with light pulse send from a laser.

Aerial LIDAR is known for its multiple uses in various fields which have been listed below: -

In agriculture

This technology can help framer increase their yield. You might be thinking how is it possible? Well, this technique direct its findings towards the higher yield section of the field. This in turn can help farmers optimize that section by nurturing it more. In addition Airborne LIDAR also helps farmers find the section of their field which gets highest sun rays.

In Archeology

Deep mapping and finding topographical analysis is another popular use of this technology. In the field of archeology this means creating high-resolution digital elevation models (DEMs) under the depth of the forest. This would have been otherwise hidden by the thick vegetation. The technology is relatively cheap hence the use is cost effective as well.

In Geology and Soil Science

For a science that is related to evolution of earth space, that is geomorphology, aerial lidar offers significant value. This technology can be used to find tectonic uplifts, faults in the terrain and measure the glacier movements accurately. This detail modeling of the terrain means that costal reaches, conducting solid surveys and understanding different geological relations is easy with this technology.

For Military Application

High resolution imaging holds great importance for the military echelons. Identifying targets with greater accuracy is now possible with airborne LIDAR. The technologies which have been evaluated by this aerial LIDAR include Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR), Differential Scattering (DISC), and Ultraviolet Laser Induced Fluorescence (UV-LIF) for the biological warfare. This technology is now being embellished for long range to get more benefits.

As advance technology in Robotic

Robotic is special field that deals with the evolution of robots. The farfetched benefits of airborne LIDAR in robotic in environmental perception and object classification is now being done. This technology gives an accurate measurement of distance, that in turn helps in high resolution imaging and precision based mapping.
