Airborne light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data provides reliable information on forest structure. Related forest inventory approaches recently evolved into operational tools. Today, further optimization of existing approaches is pursued to ensure high data quality of the inventory information and cost-efficiency over varied environmental and silvicultural conditions. Synthetic LiDAR data has been suggested as useful [...]

Did you ever consider planning and testing your LiDAR campaign in a computer simulation? Would you like a flexible means to generate 3D point cloud data for developing or testing methods? This is easily possible with the laser scanning simulation framework HELIOS (Heidelberg LiDAR Operations Simulator).
There have been major new developments since the first version [...]

On the GIScience GITHub, two new tools are now available:
The Heidelberg LiDAR Operations Simulator HELIOS is a software package for interactive real-time simulation and visualization of terrestrial, mobile and airborne laser scanning surveys.
Own virtual scenes can be generated by combining for example terrain models with other objects (buildings, vegetation). Own scan positions as well as [...]

As we mentioned earlier, we contributed four papers to the ISPRS congress and participated in the CATCON contest for brilliant Computer Assisted Teaching tools. Our new LiDAR Simulator called HELIOS developed by Sebastian Bechtold received a lot of attention. You can also find us in this video of congress day 3.

Our young researchers Katharina, Sebastian [...]
