New publication in the Lin4Wood project!


Jan Hackenberg et al. published  a research article about deriving tree models from terrestrial laser scan data. For this article scans have been used from the german aggroforestry system in Breisach to ensure high quality scan data under controlled conditions. The used algorithm was implemented in a java  software. One future goal is to apply this algorithm to scan data of chinese evergreen tree species collected during two field campaigns in 2013 in Pingxiang, Guangxi province.
