Author: Hogland, John S; Anderson, Nathaniel M.; Chung, Woodam; Wells, Lucas;

Date: 2014

Publication Series: Paper (invited, offered, keynote)

Description: Detailed, accurate, efficient, and inexpensive methods of estimating basal area, trees, and aboveground biomass per acre across broad extents are needed to effectively manage forests. In this study we present such a methodology using readily available National Agriculture Imagery Program imagery, Forest Inventory Analysis samples, a two stage classification and estimation approach, .Net numeric libraries, Spatial Analyst, Function Datasets, and ArcObjects.

Keywords: National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP), forest inventory, estimation
