LiDAR Analysis for Forestry Apps

This ESRI white paper discusses the use of LiDAR for forestry applications in Arc GIS 9.3.1. After presenting the basics on how LiDAR works and the important topic of creating surface models the paper then moves into calculation of biomass density and tree height estimation. There is also a section on the important issue of distributing large data sets.

This would certainly appear to be a very valuable reference for the hands on use of LiDAR data in conjunction with ArcGIS.
