Hughes, S.

Woodland structural data derived from LiDAR for the year 2011 in the Isle of Wight

This dataset contains height, foliage height diversity, mean crown area, tree count, bedrock, elevation, age, aspect and slope data for woodlands under 1ha in size that were also covered by Defra’s LiDAR survey in the year 2011 in the Isle of Wight. These data were collected to see if the presence of an adjacent older neighbour affects woodland structure and height in recently created woodlands. Data was processed by the author under NERC Grant NE/S007458/1 PANORAMA - A Yorkshire partnership for training in environmental careers
