An Overview of NAIP Derived Point Clouds for Forest Monitoring

September 15 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The USDA National Agricultural Imagery Program (NAIP) collects nationwide imagery approximately every two years using airborne pushbroom sensors. Photogrammetric software is used to generate canopy surface models (CSMs) from NAIP imagery, which enables nationwide forest height mapping every two years! The NAIP derived canopy surface data in some ways resemble lidar data products, but they do not contain information from within and below the upper canopy. NAIP-derived canopy surface models are low-cost (less than $0.01 / acre), frequent, and nationwide (conterminous USA), which makes them conducive to broad-scale measurement and monitoring of forest conditions. The VMaRS team from the USFS PNW Research Station has been exploring the potential of NAIP DSMs for the last few years. This presentation addresses sampling efficiency with auxiliary NAIP CSMs, forest yield modeling performance relative to lidar and frame-based imagery (pushbroom and frame-based imagery perform differently), and provides visual comparison with equivalent lidar for multiple states.

California SAF Fall Meeting

October 1 @ 8:00 am - October 2 @ 5:00 pm

The 2020 fall meeting replaces our usual field-based summer meeting. We will innovate too, by holding a virtual meeting where we will visit three locations across California with time for question and answer sessions. We will also have time for chats with the whole group or in rooms that
will host informal breakout groups. Catch up with colleagues, ask about jobs or recruit new employees, discuss log prices or fires, latest recipes, etc.
