Dataset: Beetaloo GBA extended region spaceborne LiDAR data



The dataset was compiled by the Geological and Bioregional Assessment Program from multiple sources referenced within the dataset and/or metadata. The processes undertaken to compile this dataset are described in the History field in this metadata statement. The spatial point dataset represents an estimate of the top-of-canopy height for vegetation across the Beetaloo GBA extended region. The raw data was sourced from NASA's Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) -

Relative canopy height 98th percentile (RH98) derived from the Global Ecosystem Dynamics (GEDI) Level 2A data (GEDI L2A Elevation and Height Metrics Data Global Footprint Level V001). Top-of-canopy height was extracted from raw .hdf5 data (accessible from and converted to ESRI shapefile format (.shp). Processing based upon Python routines described here:
