Subject: [gis_info] April 17 #GeoBytes - FREE Using Lidar to Study Forests

Registration https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7233919359159070209

Natural resource managers are increasingly using airborne LiDAR to study
forests to conduct inventories, assess habitat, study fires and fuels,
monitor changes, and study ecological processes. This seminar will look at
LiDAR’s strengths and weaknesses compared to other remote sensing methods
to measure forests across landscapes. We will cover how LiDAR measures
forests and how managers can process LiDAR data to measure their forests.
We will also cover how to work with a LiDAR vendor to acquire data for
forest studies and how to relate LiDAR measures with forest measurements
gathered on the ground. In many cases, LiDAR data is gathered for
non-forest studies (such as studying ground morphology);we will discuss how
to use these common data sets to also study forests.

Van R. Kane, PhD, at the University of Washington has been using LiDAR data
to study a diverse range of forests for nearly a decade. His work includes
assisting managers to plan forest restorations, study the effects of fire
on forests, measuring fuels, mapping forest biomass, and developing methods
to study forests with LiDAR data.
