David Simon, Team Leader for Elevation with Geoscience Australia will present the issues and lessons learned from a large scale LIDAR Capture on Wednesday 13th April beginning at 2:30pm at the Locate16 Conference.
Abstract Overview: Collecting big data that are measured in the size of terabytes is a challenging and time-consuming task. Geoscience Australia has worked on capturing flood plain LIDAR over key river areas in the Murray Darling Basin over the last 3 years. The survey areas were the largest attempted in Australia and with this brought challenges and issues not seen in the smaller scale capture work undertaken by Geoscience Australia and commercial LIDAR Suppliers within Australia. This paper outlines issues and lessons learnt from this large scale LIDAR Capture program. It will discuss our mistakes and how we have used that knowledge to develop a new collaborative model for capturing, managing, quality assessing and delivering large LIDAR Capture. The change is not just one of technical change but also of developing and committing to a more collaborative model when working one these projects. The benefits from this change will translate through to better LIDAR specifications via ICSM, better QA and significant reductions in procurement time and costs leading to better value for money.
