Automatic Estimation of Tree Position and Stem Diameter Using a Moving Terrestrial Laser Scanner

Ivar Oveland, Marius Hauglin, Terje Gobakken, Erik Næsset, Ivar Maalen-Johansen
2017 Remote Sensing  
An essential part of inventory is a collection of field reference data including measurements of tree stem diameter at breast height (DBH). Traditionally this is acquired through manual measurements.  ...  The method divides the laser measurements into limited time intervals determined by the laser scan rotation. Tree positions and DBH are then automatically extracted from each laser scan rotation.  ...  Minimum diameter at breast height as a function of observation distance and scan rate calculated from Equation (1) .  ...
