When it comes to accurately assessing the mass or timber volume of trees within a sample plot, LiDAR360's Biomass feature is the ultimate solution. In this case study, we explore its application in Berkeley, where we meticulously analyzed a 3.56-acre area flourishing with majestic ponderosa pines.
To begin, we employed a backpack LiDAR device to gather point cloud data from the designated plot. Subsequently, this data was processed using LiDAR360, which seamlessly executed crucial functions such as classification, individual tree segmentation, and biomass calculation. The automated nature of these processes streamlined the analysis and saved valuable time and effort.
The comprehensive analysis using LiDAR360 revealed intriguing findings. Within the sample plot, we discovered an astonishing total of 427 trees. These trees collectively boasted an impressive mass of approximately 383,397 kg. The accuracy and efficiency provided by LiDAR360's Biomass feature played a vital role in these calculations.
