Description: Jinha Jung of Purdue University presents his latest research solution: the development of a LiDAR-HUB that serves as a “virtual center” for online LiDAR data processing. LiDAR has recently been drawing a great deal of interest from Indiana researchers, planners, and land managers thanks, in part, to the statewide LiDAR program. Although LiDAR provides the unique ability to capture three-dimensional information for objects on the earth’s surface, there are several hurdles to overcome:
- Huge disk space requirements,
- the expense of purchasing commercial LiDAR software, and
- recruiting LiDAR experts to drive data processing chains.
In order to take advantage of LiDAR technologies, these issues must be resolved.
Jinha Jung is currently working for the Institute of Environmental Science and Policy at the University of Illinois at Chicago as a postdoctoral research associate and also is affiliated with Purdue University as visiting assistant professor in the Geomatics Area of the School of Civil Engineering.
