LiDAR for Enhanced Forest Inventory (EFI) Development ($173.92)

LiDAR for Enhanced Forest Inventory Development: Building on an assumed introductory knowledge of LiDAR and GIS, participants will gain hands on experience using ArcMap and the 3D Analyst extension (provided in a lab session), as well as the USDA Forest Service’s FUSION software to characterize LiDAR point cloud data, and MS Excel to develop basic regression equations for the derivation of Enhanced Forest Inventory (EFI) predictions based on field calibration plot data.

Basic statistical techniques will be discussed and applied, but no background in statistics is required.

ARPFNB CCC = 8 credits
