Tools to analyse 3D scans of a forest.
3D-tools is a set of tools for analysing pointclouds of a forest.
main.py can be used by developers, but for general use you can instead pip install forestutils, which makes the forestutils command available from your terminal.
- Detect, map, and extract trees from the full pointcloud
- Calculate location, height, canopy area, and colour of each tree
- Losslessly reduce pointcloud size by discarding ground points
It is written in pure Python (3.4+), available under the GPL3 license, and can analyse multi-gigabyte datasets in surprisingly little memory.
