Forest Measurements with Airborne and Ground-Based Laser Scanning Academic Article uri icon


  • The use of ground-based laser scanning in forest measurement and modeling is discussed. The comparison of airborne LIDAR data and ground-based scanning data is also discussed. It was found that all of the trees identified by the ground system are visible on the airborne data. The results show that combining airborne and ground-based laser data allow fine-tuning of airborne LIDAR estimates over large areas.
