Forest Analysis with Airborne Laser Scanning (LiDAR) Data

Provides functions for forest analysis using airborne laser scanning (LiDAR remote sensing) data: tree detection (method 1 in Eysn et al. (2015) ) and segmentation; forest parameters estimation and mapping with the area-based approach. It includes complementary steps for forest mapping: co-registration of field plots with LiDAR data (Monnet and Mermin (2014) ); extraction of both physical (gaps, edges, trees) and statistical features from LiDAR data useful for e.g. habitat suitability modeling (Glad et al. (2020) ); model calibration with ground reference, and maps export.
