Research presented here explores the feasibility of leveraging vegetation data derived from airborne light detection and ranging (LiDAR) and terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) for visibility modeling. Using LiDAR and TLS datasets of a lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) dominant ecosystem, tree canopy and trunk obstructions were isolated relevant to a discrete(More)
This paper examines the effect of raster cell size on hydrographic feature extraction and hydrological modeling using LiDAR derived DEMs. LiDAR datasets for three experimental watersheds were converted to DEMs at various cell sizes. Watershed boundaries and stream networks were delineated from each DEM and were compared to reference data. Hydrological(More)
Viewshed and line-of-sight are spatial analysis functions used in applications ranging from urban design to archaeology to hydrology. Vegetation data, a difficult variable to effectively emulate in computer models, is typically omitted from visibility calculations or unrealistically simulated. In visibility analyzes performed on a small scale, where(More)
