Finnish Geodetic Institute researchers receive Remote Sensing Best Paper Award 2013

Congratulations to Sanna Kaasalainen, Anssi Krooks, Antero Kukko and Harri Kaartinen (Department of Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry), who have been awarded the Remote Sensing Best Paper Award 2013. Their paper, “Radiometric Calibration of Terrestrial Laser Scanners with External Reference Targets” received the 1st prize in the category “Terristrial Laser Scanning”.

The awarded article describes a case study of radiometric calibration for two phase-shift continuous wave (CW) terrestrial scanners and discusses some major issues in correcting and applying the intensity data, and a practical calibration scheme based on external reference targets.

On an annual basis the Remote Sensing Best Paper Award recognizes outstanding papers that are related to remote sensing and meet the aims, scope and high standards of Remote Sensing.
