Leica Chiroptera II

Product Name:Leica Chiroptera II
Description:Chiroptera is a combined airborne bathymetric and topographic dual sensor LiDAR system. It simultaneously acquires full waveform data in shallow water (KD>2) and 500 kHz of topographic LiDAR data. Typically, the data is used for shallow water (<10 m) and land and environment assessement.
