LIDAR 101 (and free online training) for Map & Weather Buffs

Some of my favorite nerdy friends have been talking about LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) for years, regaling me with how profoundly it will change how we map our earth, including our oceans. I’m generally a little slow in understanding laser-based technologies, but NOAA has put together a quick and easy-to-understand overview of LIDAR. They’re also offering this great¬†online (free) course¬†that goes into much greater depth but is still accessible.
