Welcome to the Earthdata User Forum! Here, subject matter experts from several NASA Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAAC) can discuss general questions, research needs and data applications. Users can query how to access, view and interpret the data.
The LP DAAC is not involved in the development of the R package for downloading GEDI data, and thus we are unable to help you get the quality flags via the R package. However, if you download GEDI data either directly through the LP DAAC Data Pool or NASA’s Earthdata Search Client (see directions and options for downloading at: https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/documents/635/G ... _Guide.pdf, the downloaded files will return the quality flags.
