In order to increase the spatial resolution of a lidar system without shortening the laser pulses a new signal evaluation method procedure is proposed. The convolution type lidar equation is approximated by a system of linear equations which can easily be solved. For reducing the noise the evaluation of a series of pulses is investigated. A numerical simulation of the proposed scheme is presented which clearly shows the increase of spatial resolution.
