Terrestrial laser scanner (TLS)-based leaf area index (LAI) retrieval is an appealing concept, due to the ability to capture structural information of canopies as 3-D point cloud data (PCD). TLS-based LAI estimation methods promise a nondestructive tool for spatially explicit calibration of LAI estimated by aerial or satellite remote sensing techniques. These methods also overcome the sky condition restrictions of on-ground optical instruments such as hemispherical photography frequently used… CONTINUE READING
