The requested survey area consisted of a single irregular polygon of approximately 1500 km2, located west of Yosemite Valley in California. The polygon covered the Yosemite Rim fire that occurred in fall 2013. Two flight strips were flown with full waveform data collection. A smaller polygon (Smithsonian forest plot) north of Crane Flat Fire lookout, within the larger area, was collected at a higher point density and full waveform.
