DIELMO 3D is developing innovative applications for the Forestry Industry and the development of new “LiDAR forestry” algorithms, allowing for optimum results for each study area or proyect. All these developments implemented accordingly to large areas based on LiDAR data allow maximum reduction costs.
Forest mapping solutions and development of custom APPs for inventories using LiDAR data. Analysis and parameters estimation for dominant height, FCC, nº of trees, treetop analysis, etc. as well as other deducted parameters (volumes, areas, etc.)
Thanks to the 3 dimension values provided by LiDAR, the forestry analysis can be in 3D using VOXELS (volumetric pixels) instead of bidimensional pixels information. The percent of points included within a voxel area provides valuable information for 3D analysis, for example tridimensional forest structures.
It is very important to analyze the 3D structure of the forest as it allows to estimate forest fires evolution, forest species richness. Moreover, other functional aspects of the forests as productivity are also related with the structure of the forest coverage.
Thanks to the availability of a 3D forestr structure (see point above), it is possible to set a fuel model classification where, a LiDAR forestry point cloud, will allow us to find if there is vertical continuity or not between bushes and trees. LiDAR is also an added value for FCC analysis both for bushes and trees.
Edition of biomass typologies in order to generate high accurate mapping solutions for forestry for vegetation structure. The combination of this information with other factors (distances, slopes, etc) together with economical benefits factors (heating value of species, etc.) provides valuable information of where the forest explotation is efficient or not; and/or which biomass can be found in one area or another according to automated standard parameters.
