Utilization of Lidar Technology — When to Use It and Why

The use of Lidar can add value to almost any transportation project. However, the expense of data collection and post-processing may outweigh the overall benefits. This project will explore integrating Lidar technology into KYTC operations is most feasible and affordable. After developing a robust understanding of the benefits and cost of collecting and using Lidar data, the project will address best practices for data storage, software solutions for post-processing, and how data can be used within multiple operations across Kentucky.
