ON LANDSURFACE CHANGE DETECTION USING LIDAR DATASETS OF DIFFERENT SPATIAL RESOLUTIONS: A CASE STUDY EXAMINING COLORADO'S WALDO CANYON FIRE BURN SCAR
Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data were collected over the Colorado Springs, Colorado Waldo Canyon fire burn scar the year before and the year after the 2012 Waldo Canyon fire. The post-fire LiDAR data were collected after a multi-day major flood event that occurred September of 2013. The 2011 and 2013 datasets were collected at different spatial resolutions. This research tests whether, and to what degree, these two datasets can be compared to detect topographic change resulting from the 2013 and other flood events that mobilized and redeposited sediment across the burn scar. This ...
