LIDAR in Orienteering Mapping

What is LIDAR?LIDAR example

An excellent brief description can be found on this CSIRO web page.

NZ Experience

An interesting experience of use of LIDAR in orienteering mapping was recently posted on the NZ MapTalk’s Mapping forum, pages 38-39. The linkis in the sidebar on this page but more directly, head to Selwyn’s post of 7 June on the topic of Base map contours.

Finnish experience

In that post he mentions work by RouteGadget’s developer on automating orienteering map production from LIDAR sources. For those interested in LIDAR potential, this is well worth a visit. Find it on the RouteGadget Facebook page. (You might have to be a Facebook member to view).

USA experience

A 2005 article LIDAR Basemaps Come of Age by Greg Lennon of Quantico Orienteering Club, USA. The image upper right is from that article.

Australian experience

Peter Hoban of Tasmania describes An Experience with LIDAR

I understand some VIC mappers have been experimenting with LIDAR. If you know of any publication of their experience then please point me to it for a link.
