If you need to understand how LiDAR data is used to produce digital elevation models and vegetation maps, Dr. Martin Isenburg provides some robust insights.
In a series of six videos, Dr. Martin Isenburg describes the process to use LAStools to edit and analyze LiDAR data to produce digital elevation models and vegetation canopy models. LAStools is his suite of modules that provide compact yet robust analytical tools for LiDAR analysis. Toolkits for both ArcGIS and QGIS have been developed by Dr.Isenburg.

In this first video, Dr Isenburg describes how to download and begin installation of LAStools from The use of LAStools and LAStools' pipelines in ArcGIS and QGIS are also covered in this video.
