Lidar Study of Sequoias

sequoiaThe National Park Service has issued a RFP to leverage high-resolution hyperspectral and LiDAR (light detection and ranging) data to map the effect of drought on giant sequoias asserts that certain radar and LiDAR technologies have a proven track record of “providing detailed information on the 3D structure of conifer and broadleaf forests in many research and applications projects.”

More specifically, NPS is looking for capable parties to provide aerial sensing platforms for collecting imagery of nearly 146,000 acres of giant sequoia groves during drought conditions.
