Field campaign 2009 - Hyytiälä. Aims 1) Fully mapped understory tree layers, 2-3 sites, preferably with variation in site fertility and/or upper tree layer. To investigate LiDAR data in the assessment of density and species admixture in the understory layer.
1) Fully mapped understory tree layers, 2-3 sites, preferably with variation in site fertility and/or upper tree layer.
To investigate LiDAR data in the assessment of density and species admixture in the understory layer.
2) Collect data on tree growth, bore corer (ir5a(2004-2008)) and dbh, above bark id(200#-2009). To see if LiDAR features explain intertree variation in ig.
3) To add trees in the experiment utilizing the students’ workforce. To support species classification research efforts in LiDAR and image data.

Quality issuesMay 2009; simulation says 15-cm xy-accuracy in understory mapping is possible using the tape-method. Exterior orientation. Strip level, between strip and block level accuracy. Evaluated continuously.
Re-measurements in dbh, h/hc, irSome problems with the older data, mostly coherent. dbh accuracy 2-3 mm, h ~ 0.3 m, hc ~ 0.8 mSystem calibration with Vertex and other eq.?
