  • Denoised versions of the clouds on this page have been processed with software SimpleTree in 2014/2015 for the referenced publication.
  • There is outdated result models as published in 2014/2015 here as well.

    Quercus petraea - Oak Tree 12 trees

The oaks have been scanned in leafless condition in winter 2013/2014. During scanning operations weak rain appeared. Scan data is of high resolution but contains a lot of noise.

Biomass results

Please refer to the named publication, tables are included.

Point Clouds

All files are saved in asc file format. Coordinates (x,y,z) and intensity value are white-space separated.
Quercus petraea raw data, 12 clouds
Within less than 100 minutes raw data clouds have been fully automatically denoised and modeled.
Quercus petraea fully automatically denoised data, 12 clouds
A second data set provides the twelve clouds manually denoised.
Quercus petraea manual denoised data, 12 clouds
All files can also be opened with Cloud Compare.

Calculated Models

These are the PLY models from the computation used for publication result. Saved in PLY format and can be opened with Cloud Compare.
Quercus petraea 12 - Models published in Non Destructive Method for Biomass Prediction Combining TLS Derived Tree Volume and Wood Density.
The models computed with this software:
Quercus petraea 12 - Ply Models and Quercus petraea 12 - csv Models fully automatically calculated with SimpleTree after the release of SimpleTree — An Efficient Open Source Tool to Build Tree Models from TLS Clouds.
The results are supposed to vary slightly from those published, as in a second run deviations have to be expected. The automatic parameter search is a randomized brute force one.
