Series: Thursday 22 June: Combining External Sensors & Applications

On Thursday, we will begin to think about the different types of analysis that we can do by fusing LiDAR and hyperspectral data products.

Learning Objectives

After completing these activities, you will be able to:

  • Classify different spectra from a hyperspectral data product
  • Map the crown of trees from hyperspectral & lidar data
  • Calculate biomass of vegetation

Schedule: Combining External Sensors & Applications

All activities are held in the the Classroom unless otherwise noted.
