Comparing the capability of low- and high-resolution LiDAR data with application to solar resource assessment, roof type classification and shading analysis

Lingfors, D.; Bright, James; Engerer, Nicholas; Ahlberg, J.; Killinger, Sven; Widen, Joakim


LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) data have recently gained popularity for use in solar resource assessment and solar photovoltaics (PV) suitability studies in the built environment due to robustness at identifying building orientation, roof tilt and shading. There is a disparity in the geographic coverage of low- and high-resolution LiDAR data (LL and LH, respectively) between rural and urban locations, as the cost of the latter is often not justified for rural areas where high PV...[Show more]
