  • In recent years airborne laser scanning has been proven to be a helpful tool for remote sensing forestry applications. As laser scanning systems now provide very high point density (> 10 points/m2), we pursue the approach of deriving geometric parameters on a single-tree basis. We explore the potential of delineating single trees from laser scanner raw data (x,y,ztriples) through cluster analysis and validate this approach with a dataset of about 2000 georeferenced trees. The dataset includes… CONTINUE READING
