Single Tree Detection from Airborne Laser Scanning Data: A Stochastic Approach
Characterizing and monitoring forests are of great scientific and managerial interests, such as understanding the global carbon circle, biodiversity conservation and management of natural resources. As an alternative or ...
DTM Generation in Forested Areas from Full-Waveform Airborne LiDAR Data
This study was aimed at improving overall quality of Digital Terrain Model (DTM) extraction from full-waveform LiDAR data. Specifically, the primary goal was to develop a novel method to improve DTM extraction by utilizing ...
3D Classification of Power Line Scene Using Airborne Lidar Data
Failure to adequately maintain vegetation within a power line corridor has been identified as a main cause of the August 14, 2003 electric power blackout. Such that, timely and accurate corridor mapping and monitoring are ...
Tree Genera Classification by Ensemble Classification of Small-Footprint Airborne LiDAR
Tree genera information is useful in environmental applications such as forest management, forestry, urban planning, and the maintenance of utility transmission line infrastructure. The ability of small foot print airborne ...
Individual Tree Crown Delineation Using Multispectral LiDAR Data
In this study, an improved treetop detection and a region-based segmentation algorithm were developed to delineate Individual Tree Crowns (ITCs) using multispectral Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data. The dataset ...
