Evaluation of forest function using GIS data generated by LiDAR data
Authors: Katsumasa OONO
GIS is useful for analysis using many layers. In this case, forest function was evaluated by GIS analysis. The GIS data was generated by analyzing LiDAR data. LiDAR data acquisition was conducted in 2011. This LiDAR data was used for generating GIS data which is included not only forest resource information such as tree number, density, tree height, DBH, etc. but also topographical data such as slope, roads, elevation. A evaluation of forest function was carried out using these GIS information.
