Assessment of Errors Caused by Forest Vegetation Structure in Airborne LiDAR-Derived DTMs

Jake Simpson, Thomas Smith, Martin Wooster
2017 Remote Sensing  
In the presence of leaf-on vegetation, DTM accuracy is severely reduced, with low-stature undergrowth vegetation (such as ferns) causing the greatest errors (RMSE > 1 m).  ...  Using the leaf-on LiDAR dataset we quantitatively assess vertical vegetation structure, and use this as a categorical explanatory variable for DTM accuracy.  ...  The founding sponsors had no role in the design of the study; in the collection, analyses, or interpretation of data; in the writing of the manuscript, and in the decision to publish the results.  ...

Lidar for Biomass Estimation [chapter]

Yashar Fallah, Mahmut Onur
2011 Biomass - Detection, Production and Usage  
A previous work by Lefsky et al. (1999) presented the prediction of two forest structure attributes, crown size and aboveground biomass from Lidar data.  ...  Airborne lidar is confirmed as the most ideal technology to obtain accurate CHM over large forested areas because of its high precision and its ability to receive ground returns over vegetated areas.  ...  The Type II error induces some effects resulting from the fact that measured elevation values in Lidar data are replaced by interpolated values for DTM, which cause a zig-zag pattern in the DTM modeling  ...
