In LiDAR Market, LiDAR is a famous remote sensing solution technology. LiDAR is a newcomer in the market and already it proven its ability in the fields like remote sensing, geographical information system (GIS), and also in the fields in photogrammetry. The products demand of LiDAR is increasing and the knowledge base ancillary technologies, consistency in quality product are rising consumer confidence. Many mapping firms are now integrating LiDAR technology with the remote sensing systems for receiving more detail information about the image. LiDAR technologies integrated with remote sensing system provide more accurate, less time consuming programming.
The LiDAR technologies are not only used in Geographical information system and remote sensing field but it has increase its interest in commercial field also. In commercial field it provides some facilities such as commercial LiDAR industry, market niches and future possibilities. Currently in commercial market 60 types of LiDAR systems are present in the market. Thirty two companies have connection with the LiDAR systems or technologies.
The LiDAR system comprises different types of technologies like:
LiDAR system or technologies are growing day by day integrating with the sensors like panchromatic, multispectral, synthetic aperture radar and hyperspectral remote sensing
LiDAR software solution system break the barrier of the market when the products enter in the market of synthetic aperture radar and hyperspectral market. The reason behind highly increasing demand of the LiDAR systems is positional accuracy and spatial resolution of LiDAR based digital terrain models. The accuracy of the LiDAR system can be measured in applications such as water runoff for agriculture and mining sites, change detection on hillsides, coastal and inland waterways. Over 30 companies in North America were actively engage in producing LiDAR imagery and other information products.
If the demand of the LiDAR technologies increasing in the fields like government and commercial users, the production of the LiDAR systems must be increasing. LiDAR products is also use in the field of aviation. After invention of the LiDAR system or technology many companies provide more value added services. The amount of investment is increasing. In large corporations LiDAR technology support another client services like telecommunication, flood zone mapping, developed new firms or purchased existing operations. LiDAR users can map an entire image in a few days and can produce new products in a few months.
LiDAR technology is now used in many market like generating DEM (Digital Elevation Model) or DTM (Digital Terrain Model), modeling urban environments, mapping flood plains, identifying geological hazards, construct hydrographic model and slope analysis, landslide potential, measuring tree height, and visualize 2D data into 3D data format.
The LiDAR technology is also useful for constructing linear maps such as transmission lines, highways, pipelines, canals etc. LiDAR technologies or systems now dominate the market. In future days the LiDAR products will uses as an essential remote sensing tools.
