Tree ring widths are an important source of climatic and historical data, but measuring these widths typically requires extensive manual work. Computer vision techniques provide promising directions towards the automation of tree ring detection, but most automated methods still require a substantial amount of user interaction to obtain high accuracy. We perform analysis on 3D X-ray CT images of a cross-section of a tree trunk, known as a tree disk. We present novel automated methods for… Expand

measuRing: An R package to measure tree-ring widths from scanned images
The measuRing package provides functions to visually include/exclude ring borders on the R graphical device, or automatically detect ring borders using a linear detection algorithm, which detects ring borders according to negative extreme values in the smoothed time-series of gray values. Expand
MtreeRing: An R package with graphical user interface for automatic measurement of tree ring widths using image processing techniques
An R package MtreeRing for ring-width measurements on scanned digital images and an R-based web application which was developed using the Shiny framework is presented, which allows viewing and interacting with tree ring images. Expand
DeepDendro - A tree rings detector based on a deep convolutional neural network
This is the first study which applies ConvNets for an automatic detection of tree rings and the performance of the existing approach was tested on the dataset of images of wood cores of three species that represent the ring-porous type of the anatomical structure. Expand
A Method For Tree-Ring Analysis Using Diva-Gis Freeware On Scanned Core Images
An innovative and inexpensive method using DIVA-GIS freeware software to analyze true color high-resolution scanned images of cores previously enhanced with ImageJ freeware (GIS-SDI), and test its accuracy against the widely-used LINTAB-TSAPWin™ and WinDENDRO™ methods. Expand

This work introduces a O(α2mn + α4(m + n) algorithm for dating such a sample sequence against an error-free master sequence, where n and m are the lengths of the sequences. Expand
From Dendrochronology to Allometry
The contribution of tree-ring analysis to other fields of scientific inquiry with overlapping interests, such as forestry and plant population biology, is often hampered by the different parametersExpand
Kinetic volume-based persistence for 1D terrains
Persistence is the method of choice to simplify terrains by removing insignificant features while retaining topologically important ones. Motivated by applications in geomorphology, we studyExpand
Fundamentals of Tree Ring Research
Although there are other scientific means of dating climatic and environmental events, dendrochronology provides the most reliable of all palaeorecords. This comprehensive text addresses all of theExpand
A dendrochronology program library in R (dplR)
The dplR package should make it easier for dendrochronologists to take advantage of R and use it as their primary analytic environment. Expand
Design of an image edge detection filter using the Sobel operator
The architecture of the edge detector presented is highly pipeline to perform the computations of gradient magnitude and direction for the output image samples and has been demonstrated with a prototype system that is performing image edge detection in real time. Expand
