Plain Language Summary

This fact sheet provides an overview of the Petawawa Research Forest remote sensing supersite that was established in 2019. The supersite contains new and emerging remote sensing technologies, resulting in a large collection of data including airborne imaging systems, Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data, and data from Earth Observation satellites such as Landsat and Sentinel. These data holdings, combined with permanent and temporary field sampling plots, legacy forest inventories, and management history records, provide important reference data for evaluating new tools and approaches for forest inventory and monitoring applications.
