In this lab, you will generate a point cloud and an orthophoto from photos captured during one of my UAV flights last November. You will use the LiDAR toolset in Global Mapper to generate a bare ground “terrain” model and a “surface” model (includes trees, stumps, buildings, etc). ——————————————————————————— Create […]
