Development of Terrain Deformation Monitor System Based on 3-D Laser Scanning Technology
This paper introduced the working principle of 3-D laser scanning technology, analyzed the feasibility of monitoring changes in topography based on the technology, designed the method to monitor the change of terrain, achieved the terrain deformation monitor system by the using of GIS technology, carried out the practical application of terrain deformation monitoring tests, and with the comparison with traditional deformation monitoring method. Terrain deformation monitor system based on 3-D laser scanning technology can quickly and efficiently got many kinds of results. The research presented a new, practical approach for terrain deformation monitor. The method can also be applied in the fields of terrain analysis, disaster prevention and mitigation, disaster assessment, soil erosion and mine production estimates and so on.
