NOAA's Digital Coast offers a self-paced course 80 minutes long that introduces LiDAR. "This self-paced, online training introduces several fundamental concepts of lidar and demonstrates how high-accuracy lidar-derived elevation data support natural resource and emergency management applications in the coastal zone. The material provides geospatial analysts with the information needed to understand the characteristics of lidar that have direct impacts on mapping and spatial analysis projects. A demonstration is included to show how lidar data can be downloaded from NOAA’s Digital Coast." The course requires Flash and was published in May of this year. h/t Martin Isenburg.
