This data package contains metadata for data acquired for sample transects across Puerto Rico using NASA Goddard's Lidar, Hyperspectral, and Thermal (G-LiHT) Airborne Imager in March 2017. Flights specifically targeted sites with coincident field data collection for NGEE-Tropics, existing forest inventory plots from the USDA-Forest Service Forest Inventory & Analysis (FIA) program and university collaborators, and other research installations (e.g., NEON).
Goddard’s LiDAR, Hyperspectral and Thermal (G-LiHT) airborne imager, which advances previous concepts for data fusion by integrating LiDAR, hyperspectral and thermal sensors in a lightweight and portable system for worldwide research applications. G-LiHT’s single-solution GPS-INS (Global Positioning System and Inertial Navigation System) avoids multi-dimensional data effects that are introduced when data is collected at different time and observational scales. For more information about data collection please see the referenced publication: Cook, B. D., L. W. Corp, R. F. Nelson, E. M. Middleton, D. C. Morton, J. T. McCorkel, J. G. Masek, K. J. Ranson, V.
