Laser Vegetation Imaging Sensor (LVIS) Dataset over Maryland and Virginia
Entry ID: GSFC_LVIS_MDVA_2003

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Laser Vegetation Imaging Sensor (LVIS) data collected over Maryland, Virginia and patuxent Watershed. There is novel applications to build 3-D images of canopy height, elevation, complexity, and habitat structure.

The primary data products are:

* Earth topography (bare ground with vegetation removed).
* Vertical structure of tree canopies.
* Biomass estimates and above ground carbon stocks.
* Surface roughness.
* Entropy or Information density of the surveyed surface
