Lectures, tutorials and sample data, and related documents from the 2009 Geological Society of America Short Course, Introduction to the acquisition, visualization, and interpretation of airborne lidar-derived digital elevation models, are now available via OpenTopography. The course materials include lectures on lidar technology, data processing, and considerations for designing data collections. Tutorials include exercises on visualization and analysis of lidar point clouds and digital elevation models. These materials are an excellent resource for anyone seeking to get up to speed on working with lidar topography data.
