LP DAAC offers a variety of resources for working with GEDI V2 data products.
The Accessing and Analyzing GEDI LIDAR Data for Vegetation Studies video was presented as a part of a NASA ARSET LIDAR and SIF training series in Spring 2021. This session summarizes where and how GEDI LIDAR data can be accessed, followed by a demonstration showing participants how to open, interpret, and analyze GEDI data for assessments of vegetation structure.
The GEDI Spatial Querying and Subsetting Quick Guide provides instructions on finding granules for a region of interest and performing spatial and/or layer subsetting of GEDI sub-orbit granules in NASA’s Earthdata Search.
The Jupyter Notebook Python tutorials provide guidance on Getting Started with GEDI L1B Version 2 Data in Python, Getting Started with GEDI L2A Version 2 Data in Python, and Getting Started with GEDI L2B Version 2 Data in Python.
Users can access the data products through the Data Pool and NASA’s Earthdata Search.
