LiDAR-based wet-areas mapping

This video showcases the wet-areas initiative at the Forest Watershed Research Centre of the Faculty of Forestry and Environmental Management at the University of New Brunswick. The animation was done by Targetlock Studio in Fredericton, New Brunswick. The video was created using full-resolution LiDAR point cloud elevations and high-resolution image drapes. Illustrated are some of the applications that can be derived from these data. Shown are views of the data-captured forest and the wet area distributions within Kananaskis Valley in south-western Alberta. Altogether, this on-going initiative will lead to better land-use planning and practices, from forestry to urban developments, and to improved resource extraction operations and procedures.
