ENVI LiDAR is an interactive geospatial software environment for extracting 3D features and elevation-based products from LiDAR data quickly and easily. ENVI LiDAR supports most common LiDAR formats such as LAS, Binary, ASCII, and NITF LiDAR. Using ENVI LiDAR processing, you can generate elevation products such as Digital Surface Models (DSMs), Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), and digital elevation contours. ENVI LiDAR automatically extracts 3D features from LiDAR point clouds such as buildings, trees, power lines, and power poles. Products derived from LiDAR data processing are ready for import directly into a GIS.
Prerequisite: A basic understanding of LiDAR data is useful but not necessary. Some experience with remote sensing and/or GIS software is useful but not necessary.
