LUKE has released forest-related terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) data for public use, which can be downloaded from https://avaa.tdata.fi/web/paituli/latauspalvelu. This first data is from Lapinjärvi research forest, and more will follow later on. TLS has capabilities in measuring tree dimensions in a way that previously could have only been done by felling the trees first. This provides new opportunities for modelling and monitoring applications.

A related blog writing (in Finnish) can also be found in https://www.luke.fi/blogi/nakeeko-laser-metsan-puilta/. We welcome your feedback and suggestions to improve the data or its distribution. Contact details can be found from the supplementary documents in the download service
