Applications Overview
GEDI provides valuable data for many scientific and societal applications.

GEDI advances applications in a number of domains including water resource management, weather prediction, forest management, and geomorphometry. Precise height measurements of surface water, ice, vegetation, and the land surface can improve estimates of flood risk from storms, fresh-water supplies, forest resources, and can help identify priorities for biodiversity conservation. Altimetry data from GEDI can be used by scientists, modelers, resource managers, policy makers, and others to enhance our knowledge of natural resources and to promote their sustainable use.

GEDI’s canopy and surface 3D measurements address key challenges in a variety of scientific areas.
