Background information

Orienteering Australia’s mapping pages have a lot of helpful information on making maps.

Introduction to LIDAR (Russell Rigby - revised Barry Hanlon 2020)
This document has an emphasis on processing in Kartapallautin which was used in the days before OCAD added Lidar processing. However, it is still relevant to use in addition to OCAD because of the differing results which can be useful to the field worker.
