Abstract

Terrestrial laser mapping (TLM) of the SSHO was conducted in March, 2010 to provide centimeter scale spatial data of the watershed. Motivation for this high resolution scanning includes characterization of micro-topographic features, primary among which are tree throw pit and mound pairs. This file is a comma delimited text file containing x, y, and z spatial data collected during the TLM effort. This point cloud data produce a centimeter scale DEM of the western 1/3 of the SSHO watershed.
