Fall 2008 SNAMP Newsletter: Vol 2. No 3 - Spatial Team
Geospatial data, or data linked to a place on the surface of the earth, is increasingly a part of our everyday lives and an important resource for environmental research. Geospatial data play a large role in the SNAMP project. We are mapping the forest before and after SPLAT treatments, and measuring forest habitat characteristics across our treatment and control sites. This newsletter discusses one of our datasets, called LIDAR, a new tool that shows great promise for mapping forests. To learn more about LIDAR please check out the Fall '08 Spatial newsletter!
