Tools to analyse 3D scans of a forest.
3D-tools is a set of tools for analysing pointclouds of a forest.
forestutils.py is the main interface, with the other files providing functionality that may be indepedently useful.
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.
