A profile view of an airborne #LiDAR (light blue) dataset from 1200m AGL vs #UAV / #Drone photo derived structure from motion #SFM digital surface model #DSM (dark blue) for a young plantation stand of Pinus radiata. Impressive just how well these datasets line up across their vertical profile across the forest area. This provides opportunities to explore the benefits of UAV and LiDAR datasets for forest assessment. Not all the solutions to every problem is obvious until you have the datasets to explore and the Interpine #Remote #Sensing team continue to push the limits of these new technologies to understand their potential for improvements in forest management .. “Shaping Today’s #forests with the #Technology of Tomorrow”
