The aim of this study is an evaluation of the use of (semi-) automatic software solutions for the derivation of crown surface models and further forest information like vegetation height and vertical stand structure. It gives an overview of the up-to-date reachable accuracies of crown surface models and vegetation heights from traditional aerial images in comparison with the results from laser scanner data. Concerning the surface models, two algorithms (feature-based matching approach ISAE and… Expand
