This paper presents a method for semi-automatic 3D positioning of tree tops that can be used for obtaining tree maps of the photovisible trees and tree heights. Such spatio-temporal, detailed information is usable for many applications in e.g. forestry and landscape management. The method incorporates the use of passive, high-resolution optical images with co-existent low-resolution airborne lidar data. The latter is used for confining the search space of image matching to agree with the volume… Expand

Tree species identification in aerial image data using directional reflectance signatures
TLDR
It is concluded that increasing the number of image observations cancels out random observation noise and reflectance calibration errors, but fails to eliminate the tree effect and systematic calibration inaccuracy. Expand
Small footprint discrete-return LiDAR in tree species recognition
In forest inventories, the species information is crucial for economical, ecological and technical reasons. Species recognition is currently a bottleneck in practical remote sensing applications.Expand

Measuring individual tree height using a combination of stereophotogrammetry and lidar
Photogrammetric methods using parallaxes can be employed to measure tree heights on aerial photographs. Because it is often impossible to measure ground elevation near trees growing in dense forest...
A comparison between photogrammetry and laser scanning
TLDR
Although airborne laser scanning competes to a certain extent with photogrammetry and will replace it in certain cases, the two technologies are fairly complementary and their integration can lead to more accurate and complete products, and open up new areas of application. Expand
