LASER VEGETATION IMAGING SENSOR

Project Description
NASA's Laser Vegetation Imaging Sensor, or "LVIS", is a scanning laser altimeter instrument that is flown, by aircraft, over target areas to collect data on topography and vegetation coverage. The LVIS, which also includes data from an integrated inertial navigation system (INS) and global positioning system (GPS), is designed, developed and operated by the Laser Remote Sensing Laboratory, at Goddard Space Flight Center.
