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 December 19, 2019 through February 19, 2020.

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 Spatial Querying and Subsetting Quick Guide provides an overview of the GEDI Finder web service to generate a list of granules intersecting a selected region of interest and options to perform spatial and/or layer subsetting of GEDI full orbits using data accessed through the LP DAAC Data Pool or NASA’s Earthdata Search.

The "Find and Use GEDI, You Will—Getting Started with Global Ecosystems Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) Lidar Data" webinar is another valuable resource that provides an introduction to NASA’s GEDI mission and GEDI datasets along with how to get started with GEDI data using LP DAAC's web service, data prep script, and Jupyter Notebook Python tutorial series.
