There’s still time to register for Build your own 3D map with LIDAR point clouds.
If you’ve seen a semi-autonomous car before, you’ve probably seen a LIDAR (Light detection and ranging) sensor. LIDAR enables a semi-autonomous car to detect surroundings with lasers; it can be used to create 3D elevation maps to help farmers to increase efficiency and it can be used to visualize buildings on a map in really high detail to showcase your real estate portfolio.
We’ll have some fun using a very familiar landmark in Florida as an example.
