Uses 3 basic systems: laser scanning for a better distance measurement, Global Positioning System (GPS) and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for orientation recording.
The principle of measurement is based on the recording of the time that the laser beam travels back from the recording system to the touch of the target
• Allows to accurately measure and render the soil morphology;
• Partially penetrates vegetation, providing information on the type, size and influence of the water, as well as the surface of the land;
• It is a quick method of compiling the Digital Terrain Model (DTM), which would be virtually impossible to achieve with such precision by terrestrial measurements;
• Combining and data from aerial photos, offers a complex image of the area studied.
• Obtaining the indormatism quickly compared to traditional methods
