Radiometric Correction of Laser Scanning Intensity Data Applied For Terrestrial Laser Scanning.

Abstract

Alongside spatial information, an intensity scalar is also measured by LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) sensor systems. It corresponds to the amplitude of the backscattered laser beam after reflection on the scanned surface. This information isn't directly usable due to dependencies of geometrical parameters occurring during the scanning process and additional processing modifications. The research community, in a growing trend, invests efforts to convert this signal into a value which could bring qualitative and quantitative new applications. We propose in this paper, a review of the theortical background of LiDAR radiometric calibration, from physical background to state-of-art methodology. A comparison of two approaches to eliminate geometrical (range and incidence angle) and instrumental dependencies of intensity measurement is presented. Their application on several homogeneous areas of a real-world case study shows a significant reduction of intensity variation between surfaces with identical material composition. Finally, a linearization process permits to obtain an equivalent Lambertian reflectance value which, by its disciminant potential, could be specifically suitable for some algorithms like segmentation or registration.
