"Large scale Forest Inventory using LiDAR technologies"

Organização: CEF/CEABN

Data: 10 outubro :: 12h30 às 13h30

Local: Sala PF 1.6 (Auditório Florestal) 

Tema: "Large scale Forest Inventory using LiDAR technologies"

Orador: Tiago de Conto - Forlidar, Brasil


The seminar will focus on the current state of LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) applications on forest inventory, supported by our recent experiences in the planted forests' sector in Brazil. The subject ranges from airborne LiDAR applications, applied on modelling and high resolution mapping of forest resources on entire properties, to ground based LiDAR applications on plot sampling and measurements at single tree level.
