Technical Commission VII

We present the first prototype of a full waveform hyperspectral
terrestrial laser scanner and its first applications in the remote
sensing of vegetation. The instrument provides a novel
approach for one shot spectral imaging and laser scanning by
producing hyperspectral 3D point clouds. The spectra can be
used in, e.g., visualization and automated classification of the
point cloud and calculation of spectral indices for extraction of
target physical properties. The new type of data opens up new
possibilities for more efficient and automatic retrieval of
distinctive target properties, leading to improved monitoring
tools for remote sensing applications, e.g., 3D-distribution of
chlorophyll or water concentration in vegetation. At this stage
the instrument is optimized for short range terrestrial
applications, but we believe that, as technology matures,
hyperspectral laser scanners with extended distance and spectral
range will also become available from commercial
