With LiDAR data becoming more common and affordable, Esri software users now have a greater opportunity to use this 3D content within their GIS workflows. In ArcGIS 10.1, Esri's upcoming software release, LiDAR data can be managed, viewed, updated and shared, all while remaining in its native format.

To show users how to use LiDAR data in workflows, Esri will host the live training seminar “Working with LiDAR Data in ArcGIS 10.1" on May 24, 2012. The seminar will introduce users to the methods ArcGIS can manage LiDAR data, and how they can quickly view the data as points and triangulated irregular networks (TINs), take measurements and edit classification codes. Since LiDAR data typically comes in collections of LAS files, attendees will also learn how to manage these collections using a mosaic dataset, as well as disseminate LiDAR data to desktop and web applications.

After watching this seminar, attendees will understand how to:
  • Create and view surface models with LiDAR data
  • Edit LAS classification codes
  • Access LAS files from a mosaic dataset

This live training seminar is geared toward anyone who works with or is just starting to use LiDAR data. A basic knowledge of LiDAR and ArcGIS is recommended but not required.

Attendees need a broadband Internet connection and an Esri Global Account to watch the live training seminar. Creating an Esri Global Account is easy and free: visit, click Login, and register your name and address.
