    Collection Overview: USFS logo

    The purpose of this acquisition was to provide LiDAR data for portions of the Kaibab National Forest and Grand Canyon National Park on the Kaibab Plateau, in support of ongoing studies of Northern Goshawk demographics. 3Di West, through its subcontractor Watershed Sciences Incorporated (WSI), acquired LiDAR data for over 450,000 acres in the summer of 2012.
