Utilizing individual tree Information in laser assisted forest inventory

The slides and video of Juha Hyyppä's lecture 'Utilizing Individual Tree information in Laser Assisted Forest Inventory' given at the 2011 Marcus Wallenberg Prize Symposium can be seen here. The symposium was held in Stockholm on October 4th, 2011.

Mobile laser scanning in precision forestry

Can MLS be used to map or even parametrize individual trees in forests or parks? How accurately can the position be determined in poor GNSS coverage? Can the position accuracy be improved? For example these are the questions that an ongoing reserch project is aiming to give answers to.
