Positions of individual trees in high-resolution aerial photographs are estimated by use of templates derived from an optical tree crown model and the geometry at image acquisition. The template is bounded by an ellipse, for which we ®nd the optimal size, eccentricity and translation along one axis. Tree top positions are estimated as local maxima of the correlation function for the successively transposed template over the whole image. Performance is evaluated using three images from a… CONTINUE READING
