Project funded by the French Ministery for Sutainable Developement (MEDD). The acquisition was made by the company ALTOA.

Aerial laser scanning (ALS) dataset, Montagne Plomb, French Guiana, acquired on 24 September 2014.

Type: datasetLicense: not specifiedCategory: elevationResolution: 0.25 metersLast update: 7 years ago

The aerial laser scanning (ALS) dataset acquired on 24 September 2014 covers three ares of Montagne Plomb. Z1 (North Eastern part, north of crique Plomb); point density: all returns 19.30 last only 10.62 (per meter square) Z2 (central part, Eastern part of the mountain); point density: all returns 16.80 last only 10.16 (per meter square) Z3 (most western part, western side of the mountain) ; point density: all returns 17.08 last only 10.48 (per square units) Lidar Riegl LMS Q560 onboard a plane operated by Altoa, swath angle +/-20deg

Data origin:
  1. All data was acquired by Altoa flying an airplane at the altitude of ~600 (?) meters above ground level. The embarked system was composed of a scanning laser altimeter with a rotating mirror mechanism (Riegl LMS-Q560). The wave length used was 1550 nm. The scanning angle was around +/-20°. The laser recorder up to 7 reflected pulses with a nominal precision of 10cm. Ground point filtered by ALTOA who also provided DTM. 2. Delivery of the data in LAS 1.2 format. 3. The tiled las data are stored in \forestview01\ALS\MontagnePb\2014 4. Various further processing steps were carried out. Please get in touch with a point of contact
