Fusion is a LiDAR viewing and analysis software tool developed by the Silviculture and Forest Models Team, Research Branch of the US Forest Service. Fusion also works with IFSAR and terrain data sets. LIDAR uses a laser sensor comprised of a transmitter and receiver, a geodetic-quality Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver and an Inertial Navigation System (INS) unit. The laser sensor is mounted to the underside of an aircraft.
MDNR (Minnesota Department of Natural Resources) Garmin GPS is an ArcView extension built to provide Garmin handheld GPS receiver users with the ability to directly transfer data between GPS receivers and various GIS software packages.
