Drone Lidar Accuracy Standards

Overview:

Before you start any project you should do some considerable research on what standards you are going to be supporting.  

Below is a list of federal, state, and society standards to help point you in the right direction.  

This is an active blog that we are constantly updating.  if we miss one, help us out and send me an email at info@modus-ai.com so we can put this up on this list and help the community.  

Thanks
