Spring 2011 Newsletter: Vol 5. No. 1 - Spatial Team
The spatial team is using Lidar data to map forests before and after vegetation treatments and measuring forest habitat characteristics across treatment and control sites. These data will provide detailed information about how forest habitat was affected by fuel management treatments. Airborne Lidar (light detection and ranging) works by bouncing light against a target in a similar way to sonar or radar. To learn more about Lidar data and spatial team research, please check out the Spring '11 Spatial Newsletter.
