Why is lidar useful in gis?

In the GIS industry, LiDAR can be implemented from land, air, or space resources to measure location and height information for various targets with great precision. A building scan with LiDAR makes it possible to ensure that the construction matches building information modeling (BIM). The Minnesota Legislative-Citizen Resources Commission (LCCMR) has recommended funding a proposal to comprehensively identify and classify critical sources of erosion and runoff in the Zumbro Basin. The project would use LiDAR and other GIS data and precision conservation tools to prioritize restoration and protection projects with the highest cost-benefit ratio.
