Advanced Land Cover Mapping of Tropical Peat Swamp Forest using Discrete Return Lidar

Manuri, Solichin; Andersen, H.; Brack , Cris; Doran, Bruce


The ability to better understand tropical peat ecosystems for restoration and climate change mitigation is often hampered by the lack of availability accurate and detailed data on vegetation cover and hydrologys, which is typically only derived from detailed and high-resolution imaging or field-based measurements. The aims of this study were to explore the potential advantage of airborne discrete-return lidar for mapping of forest cover in peat swamp forests. We used 2.8 pulse.m-1 lidar and the...[Show more]
