PDF: Analysing Forests Using Dense Point Clouds

Abstract

A novel method is proposed to acquire tree metrics for forestry managers in New Zealand. This method involves using a UAV to capture images of trees, and then using photogrammetry to generate a 3D model which includes both a mesh and a point cloud. The point cloud is then analysed, and data and metrics are extracted. Once the metrics have been extracted, they are saved for analysis and exported to a virtual reality (VR) environment. The VR environment will allow end users to remotely interact with sections of forest replicated with photogrammetry and visualise the metrics created through point cloud analysis.
