Aerial laser scanning (ALS) dataset, Paracou, French Guiana, acquired in October 2004.
The aerial laser scanning (ALS) dataset, acquired on October 2004, covers the experimental station Paracou in French Guiyana. More precisely, the dataset covers all Paracou plots totally except of plot 15 that is only covered partly. The area includes exploited and non-exploited forest and Pinot palm. Ground echoes are available as well as a digital terrain model (DTM), a digital surface model (DSM) , and a digital canopy model (DCM) with a 1 meter resolution.
- All data was acquired by Altoa flying a helicopter. The embarked system was composed of a scanning laser altimeter with a rotating mirror mechanism (Riegl LMS-Q140i-60 ). The wave length used was 950 nm (NIR). The laser recorded the last reflected pulse. The point density is 4 points/m². 2. Deliverance of the data in time, x, y, z, intensity, flight line (Paracou.txyzil) 3. The data are stored in \forestview01\BDLidar\Données Lidar\Paracou\2004\Données brutes. 4. Various further processing steps were carried out. Please get in touch with a point of contact
