Airborne Lidar – Discrete Return or Full Waveform?

image of plane collecting Airborne Lidar

This paper from 2011 provides an excellent treatment of the difference between discrete return airborne lidar and full waveform digital signal processing. Each has its strengths and weaknesses. Discrete return (DR) airborne lidar systems can record 4 returns Full waveform (FW) can record an unlimited number in theory Some systems provide both sensors DR is catching up to FW Excerpts […]
