Photon-counting detector array is very desired for high-resolution laser imaging based on direct time-of-flight measurement. Such systems have potential applications in remote sensing with long distances. We will perform three-dimensional imaging using a large InGaAs Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode array which has single-photon sensitivity. To improve the image quality with only a few photon detections, the photon counting imaging process is analyzed and a regularization method based on pixel spatial correlation is employed for image reconstruction. The performance of the method is compared with that of conventional maximum likelihood estimation on intensity and range image reconstructions of a building about six hundred meters away.
