Canopy Profiling for Vegetation Mapping in South-western Australian Forested Ecosystems

  title={Canopy Profiling for Vegetation Mapping in South-western Australian Forested Ecosystems},
  author={A. G. Tom Schut and Grant W. Wardell-Johnson and Inna Baran},
Anthropogenic climate change is already impacting native vegetation world-wide. Thus accurate mapping of current vegetation condition is necessary for benchmarking and conservation planning. We examine the potential for the mapping of native vegetation of forested ecosystems in south-western Australia using LiDAR data. Airborne LiDAR (distance between data points 1.2 m) and RGB imagery was acquired with a discrete 4-return Leica ALS 50-II system in April 2011 and vertical canopy profiles… CONTINUE READING
