Recently, David McKittrick, Senior Applications Specialist at Blue Marble, was invited by the New York State GIS Association to conduct an online webinar. Entitled "What's the Point in LiDAR?", this hour-long presentation began by introducing the basic characteristics of LiDAR data before exploring several examples of LiDAR processing procedures in Global Mapper.
Raster imagery often becomes the base of any mapping project simply because it is the clearest picture we have on a map. If that imagery is in the wrong location, that inaccuracy cascades into digitized vectors, all the way through a decision making process. The solution is to place the data in the correct location the first time, this session will cover just that. Geographic Calculator has a powerful georeferencing tool that allows for precise placement of control marks and takes advantage of high order polynomial transformations to suit everything from a small scale scan of localized area out to large scale continent views. This session will step through common georeferencing workflows.
