After successfully completing our first Forestry Orientated LiDAR Analysis course to the final year students at the University of Canterbury in June 2011, Interpine is now offering this to the wider industry.

This is an introductory course learning how to manipulate and process LiDAR datasets, with a specific focus on forestry outputs. The course is lecturer is Dr Hamish Marshall.

The course covers the topics with hands-on labs and presentations, whereby students work through real world examples using New Zealand LiDAR derived datasets using the software such as FurgoViewer and FUSION. From getting started with LiDAR data, creating surfaces models of terrain or vegetation, to single tree or plot extraction datasets and calculation of LiDAR forest metrics, there will be something to learn for all those interested in taking the next step in utilising their own LiDAR datasets.
