Warra - DWEL back on track

After a few recurring technical issues all week, and completely dismantling DWEL, we finally have some scans of the beautiful Tasmanian Warra forest. There is some very rugged patches of forest down here, lots of ferns and very tall Eucalypts, all that thrown in with plenty of massive, decaying, fallen logs makes for fun times.
So far we've collected plenty of scans with both DWEL and Riegl as well as plant structural measurements, leaf collections using a tree climber and a shooter and UAV imeragy as well. Its shaping up to be a very good week.
Figure 1 - The trees are tall down here in Tasmania. That's an 80 m tall Flux tower that's just above the canopy!

Figure 3 - Peter and Matt letting the Riegl TLS work its magic.

Figure 4 - The first scan from DWEL for the trip. This is an image from the 1556nm laser, unfiltered, but it looks good. Plenty more scans to come!

  2. Quite a bit Zhan, but we got there in the end and collected 9 good scans from 3 different sites. I'm quite happy with the end result.
