In today’s episode of the RIEGL RiCAST, learn more about LiDAR Bathymetry.
RIEGL USA’s Division Manager of Airborne Laser Scanning, Michael Sitar, provides an overview on what bathymetry is and why it is important. Tune in as he discusses the core enabling technologies as well as some advantages and limitations with collecting LiDAR data, along with what government programs within the United States actively use or fund bathymetric data collection.
Michael Sitar has over 20 years in the LiDAR manufacturing industry. He holds a Technologist diploma from Canadore College in environmental biology technology, a Bachelor of Science from Nipissing University in environmental geography, and a Master of Environmental Science from the University of Waterloo, with an emphasis on Geographical Information Systems and Remote Sensing.
