Colorful 3D data visualization comparing LiDAR point cloud data and a canopy model. The data help map the distribution and severity of the Las Conchas forest fire.
Use LiDAR data and display software to analyze the effects of a forest fire in New Mexico. LiDAR is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure distances to Earth. It enables the Critical Zone to be explored at fine scales (~1 m) over large areas (>100 km2).
