Paper Abstract

Direct detection laser radar systems with echo signal digitization and subsequent full waveform analysis provide additional information on the target's properties compared to conventional discrete echo systems. We focus on the advantages of utilizing the additional information especially in the course of airborne laser scanning, improving for example the mandatory process for classifying the measurement data for generating high-quality digital terrain models. We present field data to demonstrate the superiority of full-waveform data over conventional laser data.
