WHRC Pantropical National Level Carbon Stock Dataset (WHRC/biomass/tropical)

A national-level map of above-ground live woody biomass density for
tropical countries at 500m. This dataset was assembled from a combination
of co-located field measurements, LiDAR observations, and imagery recorded
from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS).
