Abstract. This paper mainly uses manual calibration technology to check the elements Yaw, Pitch and Roll (YPR) in the LiDAR DGPS/IMU system and obtained the error value. Combined with the error angle, the external azimuth angle elements Kappa, Omega and Phi required by photogrammetry are obtained. The paper points out that the placement angle error will have a serious impact on the LiDAR foot position. Therefore, this paper puts forward a method to check the placement angle of the steeple roof and flat straight highway, and gives the design scheme of the optimized route to reduce the number of flights. This paper focuses on the specific process of YPR calibration, and gives a mathematical calibration model based on the influence of attitude angles Yaw, Pitch and Roll on the LiDAR foot during the flight. The placement angle error is obtained after the calibration, and the error angle matrix is used to convert the elements YPR and OPK. After checking and error correction, the point cloud obtained from adjacent airlines have achieved better coincidence effect. The experimental results show that the theory and method of YPR element calibration are correct and feasible, which simplifies the conversion process of YPR and OPK. Compared with the traditional calibration method that requires control points, this method can greatly improve the efficiency and reliability of the inspection.
