NASA Goddard’s LiDAR, Hyperspectral and Thermal (G-LiHT) Airborne Imager

This looks like a very important paper. From the abstract: “The combination of LiDAR and optical remotely sensed data provides unique information about ecosystem structure and function. Here, we describe the development, validation and application of a new airborne system that integrates commercial off the shelf LiDAR hyperspectral and thermal components in a compact, lightweight and portable system. Goddard’s LiDAR, Hyperspectral and Thermal (G-LiHT) airborne imager is a unique system that permits simultaneous measurements of vegetation structure, foliar spectra and surface temperatures at very high spatial resolution (~1 m) on a wide range of airborne platforms.

The data processing system and higher-level data products that are freely distributed under NASA’s Data and Information policy.
