Slightly off topic here but with possible laser applications.
I have been doing some experimentation with photogrammetry using imagery from my drone. I surveyed my parents home taking overlapping photos from a fixed altitude. Those images were uploaded to a cloud based photogrammetry service (I actually tried three different services to see how the results differed). The service outputs several different 2D image types as well as a 3D model. Here are the results:

Plant health image:
