This is a fly through of the Enriquillo fault valley, west of Port au Prince in Haiti. This video demonstrates the ability of LiDAR Viewer to create artificial hill-shades in real-time of point cloud data. The process of turning on illumination is demonstrated twice during the movie when the dialog boxes appear. The other transitions are edited to shorten the length of the video.
We recommend viewing this movie in a higher resolution. Due to the compression youtube uses, some of the quality of the video is lost. Click here for high res version (~44 mb) - http://haiti.geology.ucdavis.edu/videos/mp4_2048_fwest_illum.mp4
The LiDAR data are provided by the World Bank. This film was recorded on a Mac Pro Desktop with 2.93 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon and 3GB of RAM.
