Airborne LiDAR data is now commonly acquired by the Australian plantation sector in order to generate accurate digital terrain models and canopy height models at high spatial resolution for resource assessment estimates. However, these airborne surveys are relatively expensive and there is a desire to identify more affordable options for collecting or updating this information. This review presents alternative approaches to deriving canopy height models, including the use of stereo optical… CONTINUE READING
