  author={Andreas Jochem and Markus Hollaus and Martin Rutzinger and Bernhard H{\"o}fle and Klemens Schadauer},
In this study a semi-empirical model that was originally developed for stem volume estimation is used for aboveground biomass (AGB) estimation. The semi-empirical model is based on the relative heights of first echo LiDAR point cloud data and assumes a linear relationship between AGB and canopy volume. However, the usage of point cloud data leads to a computationally demanding task when processing large point cloud datasets for the generation of area-wide AGB maps. In the presented study the… CONTINUE READING
