New technologies, such as three-dimensional (3D) laser scanning and stereo imaging, have recently been adopted for quantifying plant structure. The datasets collected using such technologies offer realistic representations of the morphological characteristics of the studied plant organs. The datasets, however, are very large and occupy excessive amount of storage space. Moreover, the computation time is also very long when these datasets are made the subject of further analysis and simulation… CONTINUE READING
