Sanborn Mobile Lidar Collection of Island in South Pacific

Sanborn recently returned from the South Pacific with our Lynx Optical mobile terrestrial LiDAR sensor.  With a collection that took about 2 weeks, resulting in extremely high density point cloud data near 3500 points per square meter.  A total of 5 major villages with nearly 10 linear miles.  Both LiDAR data and RGB images, soon to be stitched into geo-referenced image sequences allowing for sophisticated extraction and modeling to be used for various end uses.
