Glossary of LiDAR-related Terms
The LiDAR Research and Education Subcommittee has compiled a glossary of LiDAR-related terms intended to serve as a reference for Minnesotans working with LiDAR data.
This subcommittee of the Minnesota Digital Elevation Committee works to design and promote best practices with LiDAR data, LiDAR-derived products and LiDAR training statewide. This design and oversight will ensure there is consistency in data development and application for all users.
