Terrestrial Laser Scans - Riegl VZ400, raw instrument files and ancillary data, Australian field sites
<p>Ground lidar, also known as Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS), is a ranging instrument that provides detailed 3D measurements directly related to the quantity and distribution of plant materials in the canopy. This dataset contains raw instrument data and ancillary data for numerous sites across northern and eastern Australia from 2012 onwards. Scans have been collected using two Riegl VZ400 waveform recording TLS instruments. One is co-owned and operated by the Remote Sensing Centre, Queensland Department of Environment and Science (DES) and the TERN Auscover Brisbane Node, University of Queensland. The second is owned and operated by Wageningen University, Netherlands.</p> <p>Data can be accessed from https://field.jrsrp.com/ by selecting the combinations Field, Ground Lidar. Raw data are accessible by selecting individual locations on the map and then clicking on the TLS scan directory link on the right hand site of the screen. </p>
The dataset contains records of Robber Crab (<i>Birgus latro</i>) mortality across Christmas Island, including location co-ordinates and details of sex and thoracic length. To manage the impact of road mortality on the species, this monitoring project is designed to assess spatial variation in road mortality. Basic data are collected at the site (sex, size, date, coordinates).
