Course description

Lidar (light detection and ranging) is a laser-based remote sensing technology.  From airborne or ground based platforms, it can be used to collect information about features on the surface of the Earth or in the atmosphere.  These data can be used to create three dimensional representations and provide precise location.

This presentation will go over how Lidar works, and real-world research applications being conducted by the Selkirk Geospatial Research Centre (SGRC)

Bruno-Charles Busseau & Robert MacQuarrie

Bruno-Charles (BC) Busseau - BC completed a B.A. in Geography and Environmental Studies from the University of Ottawa and an M.Sc. in Geography Applied to Remote Sensing from Sherbrooke University. His research used remote sensing and in-situ measurements to characterize snow accumulation and snow melt in Northern Quebec. He has since worked in the forestry and agricultural industry as a GIS Analyst and Data Scientist for the past 3 years.


Robert MacQuarrie - Robert completed a B.A. in geography and environmental studies from the Mount Allison University and an M.Sc. in Applied Geomatics from Acadia University.  His research included using Lidar, aerial photography, and geographic information systems to analyze topography and vegetation communities on Sable Island, Nova Scotia.  Robert worked for a geographic software company in California for 8 years before recently relocating to back to Canada to work at Selkirk College.
