PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGES OF TAKING INVENTORY WITH AID-FOREST

Saving time and especially costs in field work:

Inventario de campo clásico: 400 – 3000 min/ha (se necesitan 2 personas)

Vs

Escaneo LiDAR en campo: 12 – 30 min/ha (1 persona)
+ tiempo de cálculo automático

  • AID-FOREST can measure the diameter at breast height and stem volume (statistically unbiased).
  • Tree detectability is over 97% despite the ecosystem visual
    complexity. According to this research article.
  • Totally automatic software.
  • Can processes very large amounts of LiDAR data.
  • Uses Artificial Intelligence to detect the trees.

AID-Forest: Scientific article in which DiELMO 3D participates

In September 2022 the prestigious international journal “International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation” has published the scientific article “Artificial intelligence-based software (AID-FOREST) for tree detection: A new framework for fast and accurate forest inventorying using LiDAR point clouds”

RESULTS OF
AID-FOREST
(100% automatic)

  • Tree detectability was over 97% despite the ecosystem visual complexity.
  • Underestimated the DBH (tree diameter) by 0.16%
  • Overestimated the Volume by 1.37%
