Digitizing Martell Forest

Recently, the GDSL team has focused on the ambitious goal of creating a high-resolution, multi-temporal dataset of the entirety of Martell Forest. In July we covered all 477 acres with our new DJI Zenmuse L1 LiDAR sensor. Check out the results! Through the summer and fall we’ve mobilized several times to capture the forest with our go-to photogrammetry sensor, the DJI P1. We were able to capture the fall colors at two different dates and are planning a winter data collection campaign to map tree trunks during leaf-off conditions.
