Introduction

Existing space-borne LiDAR systems are collecting ground-breaking data but provide only sparse coverage, making them unsuitable for many commercially and societally important applications, including biomass change mapping and flood prediction. The University of Edinburgh (UoE) has formed the Global Lidar Altimetry MISsion (GLAMIS) project to address these issues through the deployment of a constellation of smaller, cheaper satellites which could collect continuous coverage space-borne LiDAR data.

Resilience Constellation is working with UoE to assess various applications, their requirements and the market value of space-borne LiDAR derived products to contribute towards the engineering design. We are seeking your expert opinion on the use of these products - both on your needs and their perceived value.
