Fast automatic method for constructing topologically and geometrically precise tree models from TLS Data
Keywords: Tree models, TLS, topological branching structure, branch size distribution
AbstractWe present a computational method that produces automatically precision models of trees from terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) data. The method is fast, typically few minutes per tree, and the resulting model contains both the topological and geometrical information of the tree. The method is validated using artificial and real TLS data. The results show that TLS together with computational reconstruction method provides means to collect structural information of trees fast and nondestructively.
