SnowEx20 Boise State University Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS) Point Cloud, Version 1

This data set contains terrestrial laser scanner (TLS) point cloud data collected as part of the 2020 SnowEx campaign in Grand Mesa, Colorado. Data were collected under both snow-off (September 2019) and snow-on (February 2020) conditions, at both open and forested locations. Multiple scans were conducted at each site and registered together using common targets. Each point contains X, Y, and Z coordinates (Easting, Northing, and Elevation), as well as intensity (i). These TLS data can be used to determine snow depth and explore the interactions between snow and vegetation.

This is the most recent version of these data.
