Raster Products from Lidar for Forest Applications
Authors: Adrian Madejczyk, Adrian Madejczyk, Thomas Brethvad
In this presentation we like to share a series of raster products we developed from lidar data to aid in decision-making in forestry. Timber production demands good knowledge about the state of the forest. It is expensive to record data in the field so the more data you can acquire by remote sensing methods the better. Apart from built-in ArcGis tools for making DTM and slope etc. we made more specific products for forestry like Young Forest Grid, Vegetation Index and Tree Height Raster.
