Aerial laser scanning (ALS) dataset, Paracou, French Guiana, acquired on 23 September 2013.
The aerial laser scanning (ALS) dataset acquired on 23 September 2013 covers the experimental station Paracou in French Guiana. The coverage includes all Guyafor and Guyaflux plots completely with logged-over, unlogged and swamp forest ("Pinot" or "Açai").
- All lidar 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 5 reflected pulse with a nominal precision of 10cm. The mean point density is 15 points/m². 2. Delivery of the data in LAS 1.2 format. 3. The tiled las data are stored in \forestview01\ALS\Paracou\2013 4. Various further processing steps were carried out. Please get in touch with a point of contact
