Life Cycle of a LiDAR Program
This presentation will focus on the life cycle of a large lidar program including planning, data acquisition, feature extraction, data dissemination and systematic updates. Focus will be on optimizing buy-in from partners at all stages. Identifying use cases, derivative products, and stakeholders provides the program foundation. Understanding the many variables that effect use cases, schedule, and cost allows for data acquisition that meet the greater community needs. After acquisition, developing derivative products adds considerable value for stakeholders. A strong data discovery and distribution solution ensures program adoption by new users and provides the framework to consider true stakeholder engagement. The final step includes ongoing data maintenance. We will discuss a work flow that allows users to see before and after and to highlight changes over time to ensure strong value proposition is maintained throughout the program.
