UAV LiDAR is a relatively new land surveying technique, which is based on high precision laser scanners, the Global Positioning System (GPS) and Inertial Navigation Systems (INS). Combined, they allow the positioning and orientation of the footprint of a laser beam as it hits an object, to a high degree of accuracy.
