Image space areal feature, on the other hand, will be represented by three points that have to be identified in all of the overlapping imagery covering such feature. 10). The mathematical model should be capable of incorporating these sets of points without assuming one-to-one correspondence between the photogrammetric and control data. For the photogrammetric set, the image and object space coordinates will be related to each other through the collinearity equations. 10). 10: XP XA XB XC YP YA YB YC ZP ZA ZB ZC 1 XP − X A 1 = XB − X A 1 XC − XA 1 YP − YA YB − YA YC − YA ZP − ZA ZB − ZA = 0.

Numerous methods on feature extraction from LiDAR measurements and the applications of LiDAR technology to measuring and monitoring the Earth’s surface processes have been developed in the past 20 years. To appropriately use the LiDAR data, it is necessary to understand the characteristics of airborne LiDAR technology and feature extraction algorithms related to processing LiDAR data. This chapter briefly introduces the airborne LiDAR technology, presents the filtering algorithms for separating ground and nonground LiDAR points and discusses the issues related to filtering processes, presents a framework to construct building models from LiDAR measurements, and describes the applications of LiDAR technology on mapping vegetation.
