Abstract

The use of new technology, which is airborne laser scanning (LiDAR), allows to analyze changes in the natural environment. Due to its accuracy and precision, this method makes possible to study even small landforms. It is an excellent complement to traditional surveying methods. The analysis deals with Dębina Cliff – the several-kilometers long form located at the coast of the Ustka Gulf. The cliff was developed using LiDAR images and generated DEMs (Digital Elevation Models). Orthophotomaps and topographic maps in scale 1:10 000 proved to be helpful as well. The usefulness of LiDAR images and products for studying small landforms was presented. On their basis, the exact morphometric characteristics of Dębina Cliff was determined. By comparing images taken at different seasons, it was also possible to determine the changes that have occurred during the survey. Calculations and measurements have been developed with a help of GIS software:
ArcGIS, QuantumGIS and Global Mapper.


Key words: Dębina Cliff, Ustka Gulf, LiDAR analysis, Digital Elevation Model
