An Overview of NAIP Derived Point Clouds for Forest Monitoring Webinar
Select graphic above to Register.
This presentation addresses sampling efficiency with auxiliary NAIP CSMs, forest yield modeling performance relative to lidar and frame-based imagery (pushbroom and frame-based imagery perform differently), and provides visual comparison with equivalent lidar for multiple states. This webinar is brought to you by SAF's Inventory and Biometrics (A1) Working Group.
Is this webinar for you?
This webinar is intended for foresters and natural resource professionals, and anyone seeking to learn more about the application of NAIP derived point clouds for forest monitoring.
