Forest Modelling Using Beacons

Researchers from the University of Manouba, Tunisia have been looking into the analysis of individual forest trees to monitor the state of the forest. This is needed for forestry tasks such as characterisation, inventory, management of forest and fire behaviour modelling.

Airborne Laser Scanning (ALS) derived methods were applied for individual tree detection (ITD) based on a canopy height model (CHM). A Bluetooth beacon was used to collect trees coordinates.
