LiDAR dendrometric map
The link: Access the data store is available in theDataset Description Sheets; Additional Information section. The LiDAR dendrometric map has various dendrometric characteristics useful especially in forest planning. It is a product in vector format that complements the results of forest compilations found in the [Original Ecoforest Map and Inventory Results] (https://www.donneesquebec.ca/recherche/dataset/resultats-d-inventaire-et-carte-ecoforestiere) and in the [Forest Compilation Results by Forel] (https://www.donneesquebec.ca/recherche/dataset/compilations-forestieres-originales-par-forel-methode-k-nn). The geometric entities defined from the LiDAR data are at a finer scale than those on the ecoforest map. The main variables predicted and accessible in the product are: • Usable volume per hectare per species, group of species, and certain diameter groups • Volume per hectare divided by product for certain species groups • Basal area and number of stems per hectare for certain species groups • Average usable volume per stem and average diameter for certain species groups The volumes compiled in the LiDAR dendrometric map are variables distinct from the LiDAR Gross market volume on foot predicted in the others results of forest compilations, in the [Cubage Tariff] (https://www.donneesquebec.ca/recherche/dataset/tarif-de-cubage) and for the stems counted in the sample plots of the ecoforestry inventory of southern Quebec, for example in the [Temporary sample plots of the fifth inventory] (https://www.donneesquebec.ca/recherche/dataset/placettes-echantillons-temporaires-du-cinquieme-inventaire). This distinct volume is described here as “usable” and excludes ligneous matter between 9.1 cm in diameter without bark and 9.1 cm with bark. Published documentation specifies the differences between volume variables. This product is available for territories (planning unit, private forest development agency or residual forest territory) that have a LiDAR acquisition and concern the bioclimatic domains of yellow birch fir, white birch and moss spruce. Product coverage is not complete and will evolve over the years based on LiDAR acquisition.This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).
