UAV forest inventory services
IntroductionMosaicMill has developed tree-wise forest inventory method and will start providing processing services in May-June 2018. In this novel methodology we locate and measure each tree from UAV data, and no traditional field measurements are required. Especially suitable this new inventory method is for small and medium size forest properties. MosaicMill inventory method works in both managed natural forest and plantations. In case of natural unmanaged forest, please send us sample images to evaluate forest conditions. We process inventory results from your UAV camera data and results consist of:
- Location of each tree
- Height of each tree
- Canopy diameter / breast height diameter of each tree
- Species of each tree - depends on the camera sensor
- Management plan for the property
Service levelsWe work together with your organization in UAV forest inventory. You carry out UAV survey and we take care of ther rest. Or you can also carry out photogrammetric processing and we continue with tree interpretation. Service levels are presented in this table.
|Results of MosaicMill service|| TREE LOCATIONS (X,Y,Z)|
| Level 1 +|
| Level 2 +|
| Level 3 +|
|Data requirements from you|| Point Cloud, 10 cm|
| Point Cloud, 10 cm|
| UAV survey images, 10 cm|
Tree maps are delivered in ASCII (csv) and GIS (Esri shape) format. Thus they are immediately available for any further processing. MosaicMill with its partners is able to generate forest management plans with alternative scenarios for future wood and cash flows. Contact Mosaicmill for details.
