Mapping India's Rooftop Solar Potential
LiDAR has now become an established method for collecting very dense and accurate elevation values. This active remote sensing technique is similar to radar, but uses light pulses instead of radio waves. Laser beam is the sensing carrier in LiDAR, an active remote 360 degree sensing system.
