Digitizing Martell – Continued

Work continues on our project to create a high-resolution, multi-temporal dataset of the entirety of Martell Forest. Our leaf-off data collection campaign kicked off this past January with two main objectives. First, we wanted to continue our seasonal UAV imagery collection of the entire forest. Second, we wanted to collect terrestrial laser scans at every forest inventory site. In March, Joshua and Nikhil collected the imagery with our trusty M300. You can view all the imagery we’ve collected to date here. Using the scans, Joshua used his developing tree segmentation methods to identify individual trees at each of the 113 inventory sites we scanned.

Each plot scan was processed and segmented using our in-house methods. Then the trees from several plots are viewed together on a terrain model of Martell.
