Lidar vs Photogrammetry – Is one better than the other

What is LiDAR? LiDAR is short for “Light Detection and Ranging” and is a sensor that uses pulses of light (non- visible wavelengths at about 1550 nm and 1064 nm) to determine the distance between the sensor and the object. These pulses are sent out rapidly (up to about 150.000 pulses per second) and “bounce” […]
