Paper Abstract

Trends of utilization of airborne laser scanning are introduced. The first airborne laser scanner in Japan was developed in 1996 and airborne laser scanning gained much attention recently. Research issues conducted by the Geographical Survey Institute, the governmental organization for surveying and mapping, on the airborne laser scanning are presented including accuracy test, 3D city modeling, detailed landform measurement of slopes and crustal deformation by a volcano.
