Attendance by invitation (see call for participation).


LIDAR (portmanteau of “light” and “radar.”) is a remote sensing technology that measures distance by illuminating a target with a laser and analyzing the reflected light. Among other applications, LIDAR is useful for detailed mapping of terrain, elevation, structures, and change detection in disaster management at several levels. The field is rapidly maturing in capabilities, applications, and utility. This workshop will look at the current level of LIDAR practices in the NJ/NYC region, the successes from Super-storm Sandy, the future of the technology and potential future applications.

Note: The goal is to build a community and communicating across the research, application, and ultimate user communities rather than simply a day of PowerPoint presentations. We have scheduled half the workshop for overviews on aspects of LIDAR and half for breakouts where people from all three communities can interact, think about the possible applications and come out with ideas for future directions.

Presented under the auspices of the The Command, Control and Interoperability Center for Advanced Data Analysis (CCICADA), the Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation (CAIT), the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University, and the US Department of Homeland Security.
