Monitoring Indonesian Forests with LiDAR

90 survey sites across the Indonesian portion of the island of Borneo

The 2014 LiDAR campaign covered 90 survey sites and approximately 100,000 hectares across the Indonesian portion of the island of Borneo (from Hagen 2015).

NASA's Carbon Monitoring System collected LiDAR data from Indonesia as part of a national forest carbon inventory.
