Title: SPRUCE Terrestrial Laser Scans of Experimental Plots Beginning in 2015

Abstract

This data set comprises terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) point clouds from the SPRUCE experimental plots located in the S1-Bog of the Marcell Experimental Forest (MEF) near Grand Rapids, Minnesota. In 2015 the 12 experimental SPRUCE plots were scanned near peak foliage. In 2016, 2017, and 2018 the 12 plots were scanned prior to green up and once near peak foliage. Additional data will be added through Summer 2021. A RIEGL VZ-1000 unit was used to collect all scans. Four TLS scans in each plot were registered to produce a single point cloud per plot using RiSCAN PRO v2.3 software. Point clouds are saved in LAS (.las) 1.2 format. Point clouds were geo-registered to surveyed plot locations.
