NSF NEON Workshop: Topographic, geomorphic, and vegetation analysis with lidar

This 3-day course taught by OpenTopography and NEON lidar experts will consist of lectures and labs on topographic, geomorphic, and vegetation analysis with lidar point clouds and derived products. The course will utilize NEON data and attendees will have the opportunity to bring their own datasets for analysis. This workshop is part of a series of NSF/NEON supported training on the use of datasets from the NEON Airborne Observing Platform to enable new discoveries in the biophysical research community. See the hyperspectral data webpage for a workshop focused on NEON-hyperspectral data.
