Integrating GEDI Data with Elevation and Vegetation Type at 30 m Resolution

User Question from GEDI NASA Earthdata Webinar: Has the GEDI team considered integrating GEDI data to generate elevation and vegetation type as a regular 30 m gridded global product (annually or mothly)?

There is some work done on generating a Global Forest Canopy Height, which is an extrapolation of GEDI with Landsat, led by the GLAD team at UMD. There are limitations, with saturation above 30m height. It was the first demo of combining GEDI with Landsat.
(Hansen et al; combining optical with version 1 data).
