Assessing the accuracy of regional LiDAR-based biomass estimation using a simulation approach

To meet the increasing need for reliable and timely timber resources and carbon stock estimates at intermediate and local decision levels, a sampling approach using airborne laser scanning (ALS) as a strip sampling tool has been proposed as a supplement to the conventional field-based National Forest Inventory system.

Single tree detection in heterogeneous boreal forests using airborne laser scanning and area-based stem number estimates

A investigation of adaptive single tree detection methods using airborne laser scanning (ALS) data are published in International Journal of Remote Sensing (IJRS). Continue reading
