Canopy height for French Guiana

Type: mapLicense: not specifiedCategory: imagery, base maps, earth coverLast update: 9 years ago
Land cover

A canopy height for French Guiana obtained using the data fusion of LiDAR, optical and other environmental datasets (spatial resolution = 250 m x 250 m). The precision of the map by comparison to a high precision airborne LiDAR canopy height estimates was evaluated at around 3 m (mean canopy height of 30 m). Data years Lidar spaceborne data (GLAS-ICESat): 2003-2009 Airborne lidar data provided by BRGM: 1996 Airborne lidar data provided by Altoa: 2004-2009 Optical data: 2003-2013 SRTM DEM: 2000 Geological map: 2001
