Overview

This data set contains terrestrial laser scanner (TLS) point cloud data collected as part of the 2017 SnowEx campaign in Grand Mesa, Colorado. Data were collected under both snow-off (September 2016) and snow-on (February 2017) 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.
