This dataset provides Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) Level 3 (L3) gridded mean canopy height, standard deviation of canopy height, mean ground elevation, standard deviation of ground elevation and counts of laser footprints per 1 km x 1 km grid cells globally within -52 and 52 degrees latitude. L3 gridded products can be used to characterize important carbon and water cycling processes, biodiversity, habitat and can also be of immense value for climate modeling, forest management, snow and glacier monitoring, and the generation of digital elevation models. This first release of L3 products are simple averages and standard deviations of the footprint profile metrics within each 1 sq. km cell. Future versions will optimally interpolate data to produce the best estimate of the mean and its error for each grid cell.
