Lidar Links


CSIRO research is seeking to harness lidar technology to significantly enhance our capacity to describe the status and dynamics of vegetation from forest stand to continental scales. This will have immediate applications in forestry, land cover management and global change research. By using data from various sources, some Lidar trials, simulation and our base of experience, we have identified how these tools can be put to work.

CSIRO commissioned a business plan development to assess the commercial potential for Lidar based forest mapping and is now seeking partners to see systems built in Australia.
