Paper Abstract

RIEGL LIDAR instruments based on echo digitization and on-line waveform processing provide valuable attributes to every detected target: calibrated amplitude, calibrated estimated target reflectance, and echo pulse deviation. Additional attributes could be provided by employing enhanced algorithms. In hydrography an estimate for the backscattering coefficient of a water column, for topographic targets an estimate of the angle of incidence of the laser beam on flat targets can be determined. We present data sets based on on-line waveform processing of RIEGL's V-Line and assess the possibility of deriving additional attributes by performing more sophisticated analysis of the waveform.
