Paper Abstract

Faced with different parameters in nowadays commercial airborne LiDAR market, a common evaluation standard based on the user requirements including data quality and efficiency was developed to help users select a proper device. In this paper, user requirements and data evaluating method were firstly discussed to build up a link between accuracy and acquired footprints. Then, the relations between the coordinates of footprints and parameters were thoroughly analyzed. The parameters were classified into basic and derived parameters, and a common evaluation standard was set up to uniform these parameters according to data quality and efficiency. Furthermore, to demonstrate the effectiveness of the standard, different parameter configurations were presented according to three different scenarios. The common evaluation standard will help users to clarify and uniform the understanding of parameters.
