One of the first areas investigated for commercial applications of LiDAR was for forest applications. Topography and forest coverage are of extreme importance for forest resources managers. Accurate information on trees height and density, besides being fundamental for planning, are hard to obtain by conventional methods. Laser scanning technology, as opposed to satellite images and aerial photographs, can concurrently map the ground and obtain estimates of trees height. The use of modeling… Expand
Reducing of the sampling error in Eucalyptus ssp. stand volume through airborne laser scanning estimation.
This study evaluates the use of ALS (Airborne Laser Scanning) metrics as part of a double sampling design for stand volume estimation in Eucalyptus plantation, comparing the results to traditional sampling designs such as simple random sampling and stratified random sampling. Expand
Predict volume of trees integrating Lidar and Geostatistics.
The geo-statistical model considering spatial distribution of height was statistically superior based on Akaike’s Information criterion, improving the performance in 32.7 units compared to the alternative modeling. Expand
