A new tutorial for the 3DGeo’s LiDAR simulation software HELIOS has been posted to the repository’s wiki page. It shows a simple way to generate scenes of real landscapes including building and vegetation models as well as terrain from NASA JPL’s SRTM data.
When applied to OSM data in the city of Vienna, the obtained 3D [...]

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 [...]
