2017 Operational LiDAR Inventory (OLI) Meeting

Our second meeting has completed. Thanks everyone for your interest and participation! I learned a lot and I hope others did as well. There are some really cool tools available and others coming on board. We were able to engage a variety of perspectives on inventory and on remote sensing etc.

Sorry we forgot to take a picture this time around.
