  • Title: Testing LiDAR and Camera Backpack System

  • Abstract:

    We are building a backpack system equipped with lidar and cameras to measure and monitor forests. To do this, we will need to validate our lidar point cloud and computer vision data against existing data on forest plots. Using the ForestGeo plot or similar plots in the forest, we can then validate our data acquisition and show results that can support future use of our system.
