Google Earth Overlay of Laser Vegetation Imaging Sensor (LVIS) Released Data

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The LVIS team has generated an overlay KML file of all the currently released data for Google Earth. Download the overlay file and open with Google Earth to display icons representing the center of each data release area available in the download section. Clicking either an icon or item in the LVIS Lidar Data Releases folder (under Temporary Places) will bring up a description balloon and links to GMT generated overlays and the raw data. If you open either the elevation or height images, a separate item will be loaded under the Temporary Folders so you can enable or disable the images at will.
