We present the first open-source toolbox for both ICESat-2 and GEDI satellite LiDAR data as a Julia package.
ICESat-2 and GEDI are two NASA missions launched at the end of 2018.
The GEDI full waveform LiDAR is attached to the ISS and investigates vertical forest structure.
ICESat-2's ATLAS instrument is a discrete LiDAR system in a polar orbit and investigates ice sheets.
