New member - tree measurement

Post by suriak » Tue Feb 11, 2014 9:02 am

Hi everybody

my name is Peter Surovy, I currently live and work in Japan, I am interested in tree measurements and biometry. I found your board and joined it, I would like to find some new information and also receive some feedback, hints about tree measurement and so on. I see that this topic is intensively discussed here.

I work on 3D reconstruction of trees, I found on this board that you already have a nice examples of photogrammetry here from Michael Taylor http://www.ents-bbs.org/viewtopic.php?f=235&t=5544. I attached here a 500 years old japanese cryptomeria. (The diameter in the height of the white rope is cca 4 meters)

And I also try to develop in my free time some measuring apps for iOS, you can find one on AppStore (search for SmartForester). It is only a prototype and it only works on iPad, there may be many bugs and errors. At the moment I work with the students on the accuracy assessment and ergonomy of it. As I said if someone is interested any feedback or comment is appreciated. Thank you.

Welcome, its nice to have someone from Japan. There sure are some impressive Camphor trees over there, some of my favorites. Looking forward to your posts.

Peter,

Welcome aboard. We are very pleased to have you join us. I routinely test apps for possible tree-measuring purposes and would be happy to take a look at your app and give feedback. I'm sure Michael Taylor will want to converse with you. As you'll discover, we deal with tree measuring and modeling at all levels. It is always exciting for us to gain a new member with special skills. Again, welcome aboard.
