We have updated the OpenTopography Short Courses page with the lectures, tutorials and sample data, and related documents from last weeks Southern California Earthquake Center sponsored Short Course: Using EarthScope and B4 LiDAR data to analyze Southern California’s active faults. This course was focused on applications of lidar to active faults, but the course materials include lectures on lidar technology, data processing, data sources, and examples of other scientific applications. Tutorials include exercises on visualization and analysis of lidar point clouds and digital elevation models, various free data processing tools, and fault offset and hydrologic applications.
This is the second workshop this fall that OpenTopography has been involved in. Resources from past OpenTopography short courses, including the recent October 2009 GSA Lidar Short Course, can be found on our Short Courses page.
