Oregon researchers are mapping forest habitat with LiDAR technology.

As part of a larger Bureau of Land Management (BLM) effort, the Oregon Wildlife Institute is collaborating with the U.S. Geological Service Forest and Ecosystems Sciences Center and faculty from Oregon State University to investigate the breeding habits of two threatened bird species: the marbled murrelet and the northern spotted owl. The study’s goal is to use light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data to create more detailed maps of the breeding sites, which will allow forest managers to better manage critical habitat. Maps and first publications from the research will be available in 2012.
