The growth of drone technology has provided an avenue to create 3-D images of a desired region. We combined photographs to create a point cloud model which we compared to a point cloud created from the LiDAR (Light Detection And Radar) data. By comparing these two point clouds, we can later determine calibration variables for the LiDAR system.
