Jun 3 2009 - Southern Site LiDAR Workshop

Jun 3 2009

The Sierra Nevada Adaptive Management Project (SNAMP) Spatial Science Team recently hosted two educational workshops on the uses of Lidar in forest research and management. Lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) is a remote sensing technology that uses scattered light to characterize ground based resources.

The workshop included lidar basics, types and use examples, as well as other imagery technology. The science team also addressed the incorporation of lidar into the SNAMP project with examples from the water and wildlife teams and fire models.

The presentations from this workshop can be downloaded here, at the links to the right.
