Re: Irradiated Archae and LIDARed dinos
> LIDAR and dinosaur weights... (technology catches up to ink and paper)
I'm not sure this sort of laser-scanning apparatus can really be called 'LiDAR'
in the traditional
sense. 'True' LiDAR measures not only the distance to the object (the 'Ranging'
part of the
acronym), but also 'detects' (the D in the acronym) the difference in spectral
the outward-bound laser pulse and the reflected pulse. I doubt there's much of
the latter employed
in 3D laser scanning of objects.
