Airborne light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data provides reliable information on forest structure. Related forest inventory approaches recently evolved into operational tools. Today, further optimization of existing approaches is pursued to ensure high data quality of the inventory information and cost-efficiency over varied environmental and silvicultural conditions. Synthetic LiDAR data has been suggested as useful [...]

During the last three days of field work we not only acquired a lot of data at different sites in the Erg Chebbi. We also experienced various weather conditions including two sand storms, rain and sunny and hot days.
Yesterday, one group measured ground control points for satellite and photogrammetric point cloud data with an RTK [...]
