New York University’s Center for Urban Science and Progress (NYU CUSP) [and NYU Tandon School of Engineering] Professor Debra F. Laefer has released the world’s densest urban aerial laser scanning (Lidar) dataset. At over 300 points per square meter, this is more than 30 times denser than typical Lidar data and is an order of magnitude denser than any other aerial Lidar dataset. The dataset also includes the first ever urban scan with the full-waveform version of the data, as well as affiliated imagery and video.
