Lidar remote sensing for forestry applications: The Indian context

  title={Lidar remote sensing for forestry applications: The Indian context},
  author={M. Behera and P. S. Roy},
  journal={Current Science},
Lidar remote sensing has the unique advantage of providing three-dimensional data through direct and indirect retrievals with unprecedented accuracy. It has enormous potential for forest ecological research, because it directly measures the physical attributes of vegetation canopy structure that are highly correlated with the basic plant community measurements. This technology is new and is restricted to only few countries of the world and has not yet properly reached to many countries… Expand
Evaluation of remote sensing methods for continuous cover forestry
The overall aim of the project was to investigate the potential and challenges in the application of high spatial and spectral resolution remote sensing to forest stands in the UK for ContinuousExpand
Lidar sampling for large-area forest characterization: A review
Abstract The ability to use digital remotely sensed data for forest inventory is often limited by the nature of the measures, which, with the exception of multi-angular or stereo observations, areExpand
Lidar remote sensing of bird canopy habitat use in the Northeastern United States.
A current challenge in biodiversity research is understanding the effect of vegetation structure on the potential of an ecosystem to support species richness and habitat use. We take advantage of theExpand
3D Mapping by Photogrammetry and LiDAR in Forest Studies

Mapping multi-scale vascular plant richness in a forest landscape with integrated LiDAR and hyperspectral remote-sensing.
This study goes beyond the remote characterization of upper canopy diversity to instead model total vascular plant species richness in a continuous-cover North Carolina Piedmont forest landscape, and demonstrates the potential of remotely-sensible essential biodiversity variables for mapping and monitoring landscape floristic diversity from air- and space-borne platforms.
