Dr. R.C. (Roderik) Lindenbergh


Lindenbergh studied computational algebra at the University of Amsterdam before obtaining a PhD on limits of Voronoi diagrams from Utrecht University. At the Dept. of Geoscience and Remote Sensing he did postdocs on change detection from Airborne Lidar data and on fusion of water vapour estimates from MERIS and GPS measurements before becoming an assistant professor on spatial point clouds.

Research theme

  • Optical and Laser Remote Sensing


Lindenbergh develops methods for the efficient extraction of geometric information from notably spatial point clouds obtained by laser scanning.  Laser ranging and scanning is operational from different platforms including satellite (ICESat), airplanes and helicopters, cars and tripod. The quality of the extracted information depends on sensor characteristics, acquisition geometry, data redundancy and processing method. Our own laser scanner is used for close range applications such as vegetation characterization and structural monitoring.
