Above all, LiDAR technology offers incredibly accurate and consistent results. The short wavelength can even detect small objects and create exact 3D models, allowing us to determine what the objects are, be it a tree, a person or a wall. Since LiDAR can penetrate the ground and provide detailed models of the object being inspected, it provides a much higher area density (also known as surface density). This can be useful for applications such as the delineation of alluvial plains and is preferred for applications that require a higher surface density compared to other methods, such as photogrammetry.
While LiDAR has many advantages, there are some limitations of LiDAR that make it quite difficult to use.
