The Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) instrument provides high resolution laser ranging of Earth's forests and topography from the International Space Station (ISS).

A new learning resource is now available to assist users in exploring the data structure, variables, and quality flags of the GEDI L4A Footprint Level Aboveground Biomass Density, Version 1 dataset:

Exploring GEDI L4A Data Structure

This Jupyter Notebook tutorial aims to illustrate how to work with the aboveground biomass density (AGBD, in Mg/ha) estimates and associated uncertainty within each sampled geolocated laser footprint.
