This half-day course teaches best practices in working with available topographic LiDAR in the State of Maryland. In this workshop, you will learn how to access the latest topographic LiDAR data in Maryland for preparing, downloading, and processing on your local machine. We’ll start with compressed LAZ format point cloud data, showing you how to download, extract and organize the data efficiently for further processing in ArcGIS for Desktop. You will learn how to build LAS and mosaic datasets and explore the functionality of each. We will explore custom raster functions for a variety of LiDAR derivative products, as well as the functionality of the Image Analysis Window in ArcGIS for Desktop for quick and on-the-fly processing of LiDAR data. The last section of this course, briefly covers custom LiDAR focused ArcPy script tools. Participants are encouraged to bring their own storage device so they can keep the modules, script tools and derivative products from this workshop.
