Description

This data set provides 30-meter gridded estimates of aboveground biomass (AGB), canopy height, and canopy coverage for the state of Maryland in 2011. Leaf-off LiDAR data were combined with high-resolution leaf-on agricultural imagery to select 848 field sampling sites for biomass measurements. The field-based estimates were related to LiDAR height and volume metrics through random forests regression models across three physiographic regions of Maryland.
