High-resolution topographic data collected via airborne and terrestrial laser scanning (lidar) have stimulated new results in the areas of surface processes, hazards, tectonics, and ecology. However, significant bottlenecks to data access, processing, and analysis remain. This session emphasizes technical advancements in high-resolution topographic (and bathymetric) data management, processing, analysis, and visualization, as well as related applications. We invite contributions on software and algorithm development, high-performance data processing and visualization, and emerging analysis techniques.
