Delineation and reconstruction of 3D components and volumes from mountain pine beetle-infected forest plots using terrestrial laser scanning (TLS)

Description: The 3D detail of forest plots under mountain pine beetle (MPB) attack can be characterized with the high-resolution terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) dataset that represents heterogeneous fuel components and individual-tree conditions. The dataset is generated by multiple processing steps of scan collection, point cloud georeferencing, noise cleaning, tree extraction, individual-tree isolation, plot component delineation, individual-tree wood reconstruction, and MPB phase classification.
The entire methodology is described in Xi. et al (2023).
The dataset is suitable for diverse research purposes, e.g. point cloud processing, classifier and segmenter training and testing, inventory attribute extraction, and branch-level tree attribute analysis.
