See How Filmmakers Used Drones To Tell A Stunning Tale Of How The World Uses Water

The Carnegie Airborne Observatory (CAO) uses a pair of lasers that send out 400,000 pulses/min toward the ground and create a 3D map of a forest and the vegetation it contains. The lasers can tell differences in forest biomass. In this image, taken near Puerto Maldonado in the lowland Peruvian Amazon, the densest biomass is in red and the sparsest in yellow. Patches of deforested land have very low biomass and are shown in light blue; sparse riverbank vegetation is in darker blue. (CAO)
