Abstract

The objectives of this study were to: (1) identify sites with a variety of different vegetation coverage types (i.e., conifer, deciduous, mixed, and meadow) from within the airborne LiDAR coverage zone, (2) select areas of dense, medium, and sparse vegetation density from the previously selected vegetation coverage areas, (3) select 30-40 circular sample plots with a 15m radius from the previously selected areas of varying vegetation coverage and density, (4) to perform a vegetation survey, including plot-scale data (location, LAI, closure, and density) and individual-scale data (location, species, height, dbh, and crown class) for use in ground truthing of airborne LiDar.
