Airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) provides accurate height information for objects on the earth, which makes LiDAR become more and more popular in terrain and land surveying. In particular, LiDAR data offer vital and significant features for land-cover classification which is an important task in many application domains. Aerial photos with LiDAR data were processed with genetic algorithms not only for feature extraction but also for orthographical image. DSM provided by LiDAR reduced the amount of GCPs needed for the regular processing, thus the reason both efficiency and accuracy are highly improved. LiDAR is an acronym for Light Detection and Ranging, which is typically defined as an integration of three technologies into a single system, which is capable of acquiring a data to produce accurate Digital Elevation Models.
