Package opalsForest

The package opalsForest provides a set of modules and scripts dealing with forestry applications like:

  • DSM generation (in forested areas)
  • forest border delineation
  • delineation of homogeneous wood stands
  • determination of crown coverage
  • biomass (wood stock) estimation
  • analysis of forest layer structure
  • classification of tree species
  • change detection
  • estimation of gap fractions
  • estimation of stem diameter distributions

Please note, that opalsForest is only partially available and some modules are in experimental state..

Unlike other packages, opalsForest consists of a multitude of loose scripts for different purposes. Therefore, the package script opalsForest only gives a short information, but cannot be used to run all the scripts in the module.
