The Research and Application of 3D Laser Scanning Measurement Technology in Forestry

Article Preview

In order to measure forest inventory, we propose an approach that enables automatic, fast and accurate tree trunks segmentation from three-dimensional (3-D) laser data. Results have been demonstrated in real-time on-board a round mobile robot. At the same time, we propose an approach to estimate tree diameter at breast height (dbh) that was tested off-line on a variety of ground laser scanner data, so it is very suitable for being popularized in forestry section.
