CFRU Winter Advisory Meeting

The Wheatland Lab will be giving our year one project update for our CFRU project entitled “Measurements, Models and Maps: Large-area Forest Inventory from Airborne LiDAR Data” during the 2020 winter advisory meeting.

Measurements, Models and Maps: Large-area Forest Inventory from Airborne LiDAR Data

This project has organized and carried out initial investigations into the use of LiDAR remote sensing analysis to enhance the design and operation of inventory programs for Maine’s forest industry stakeholders. The research conducted here is evaluating ground-based inventory plot designs together with existing, publicly-available Airborne Laser Scanning (ALS) data sets processed in a high […]
