Forest Assessor - Automatic Forest Evaluation using e.Cognition
This e.Cognition ruleset has been developed and applied during the course of various projects with a large German State Forest Administration and other private forest owners. It is designed to create a polygon shapefile representing single tree crowns. It can process all types of forest stands, including very young and mature stands simultaneously. During the processing, a stand is divided into homogeneous groups based on tree height. Each group is then processed separately using different sets of variables. These variables can be adjusted by the user. If you wish to adjust and further develop the ruleset to meet specific conditions (such as the use of different RS data or local stand conditions), or if you wish to automatically measure all numeric crown parameters with ATLAS (a helpful tool to analyse the point cloud of the detected crowns), please address your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
