Multiple returns in static TLS systems

Post by JGaspar » Mon Mar 06, 2017 8:13 pm

Hello guys,

I would like to know what you guys think about the possibility to have multiple returns (let's say ... 3 or 4) in your current systems?

If you think it could be helpful, how would you expect to use that information?

I have a good use for it, like for example, surveying in terrains surface (for DTM purposes) when a sparse bush is present. I could use the very last return, expecting to get the real (or as close as possible) ground.

In my opinion it would be great. And you guys?
