“The Laser That’s Changing the World” tells the story of lidar through the stories of the innovators that shaped the technology and its many applications. Here are two bonus “extras.” One is a timeline that covers lidar chronologically (the book is generally guided by the dictates of time, but it’s also thematic). The second are images (plus some video), many of which I took along the way while reporting, that share a colorful topic in color.
