(1) Precision is considered as the mean value of absolute elevation differences between 2 flight lines recorded in opposite directions over a nadir-located 40 m² hard surface area. Here, precision was obtained by averaging the result from 3 flight levels @60, 90 and 120 m AGL.

(2) Accuracy is considered as the RMSE value of the elevation differences between targets and lidar points extracted from 2 flight lines recorded in opposite directions. Here, accuracy was obtained by averaging the accuracy from 3 flight levels @ 60, 90 and 120 m AGL. Targets are located within a 40 m wide corridor centred along the flight line axis.
