Our objective is to evaluate the boreal forest aboveground biomass (AGB) and stem volume (VOL) imputation accuracy when scanning LiDAR or TerraSAR-X stereo radargrammetry-derived point-height metrics are used as predictors in the nearest neighbor imputation approach. Treewise measured field plots are used as reference data in the AGB and VOL imputations and accuracy evaluations. The digital terrain model (DTM) that is produced by the National Land Survey of Finland is used to obtain aboveground… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • The relative root mean square errors (RMSEs) for AGB and VOL are 29.9% (41.3 t/ha) and 30.2% (78.1 m3/ha) when using TerraSAR-X stereo radargrammetry metrics.
