Autoware - Localization in the desert

What is the best way to improve localization in the desert if LiDAR is unable to do so?

I have Velodyne VLP-16 LiDAR which has a range of 100m (although for matching with ndt map, it does not go beyond 50m for small shrubs). Hence for a location like in Mojave Desert in the link shown below. localization using LiDAR fails.

Environment: Ubuntu 16.04, ROS Kinetic, Autoware 1.12.0
