The LVIS L1A Geotagged Images, Version 1 data set is now available at the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC).  This data set contains geotagged images collected from 21 May 2019 through 08 August 2019 over the United States, Western Canada, and Central America. The images were taken by two NASA Digital Mapping Cameras which were mounted alongside the Land, Vegetation, and Ice Sensor (LVIS), an airborne lidar scanning laser altimeter. The data were collected as part of either the Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) mission or NASA’s Terrestrial Ecology Program campaign, the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE).
The NSIDC DAAC provides access to the documentation and data from here.
