Course Description

Learn the basics of Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) and start making online maps for your projects! LiDAR has the power to peer through the tree canopy to create maps of the ground, stone walls, and structures, as well as, to provide measurements of vegetation height and type. This workshop will cover the basic concepts of using LiDAR for forestry work in New Hampshire, including what data layers are available and how to access them online. Participants will learn how to make and share their own online maps using LiDAR data layers using free online GIS software. No previous GIS experience is required to attend this workshop.
