Laser Mapping The Earth

NASA scientist Bryan Blair introduces a laser mapping sensor known as LVIS (the Land, Vegetation, and Ice Sensor), which is flown by aircraft over target areas to collect data on surface topography and vegetation cover. Bryan also discusses the benefits to mounting LVIS onto high-altitude, long-duration aircraft such as the Global Hawk.
