The LP DAAC is pleased to announce the availability of the Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) Level 1B Geolocated Waveform Data, Level 2A Elevation and Height Metrics Data, and Level 2B Canopy Cover and Vertical Profile Metrics Data for August 8 through September 4, 2019.

A link for the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) landing page for each of the GEDI datasets is provided below.

  • GEDI L1B Geolocated Waveform Data Global Footprint Level - GEDI01_B
  • GEDI L2A Elevation and Height Metrics Data Global Footprint Level - GEDI02_A
  • GEDI L2B Canopy Cover and Vertical Profile Metrics Data Global Footprint Level - GEDI02_B

The GEDI Finder web service provides spatial querying of GEDI files to generate a list of links to all of the GEDI granules intersecting a selected region of interest. Another useful tool is the GEDI Subsetter Data Prep Script which will extract the desired layers, clip to the region of interest, and export as a GeoJSON file of points that can easily be loaded into GIS and/or remote sensing software for further visualization and analysis.

Users can access the data products through the Data Pool and NASA’s Earthdata Search.
