Laserdata i skogsbruket: - och möjliga tillämpningar för privata skogsägare
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Data retrieved from airborne laser scanning represents a new source of forest data. Today, the technology has matured so that it can function in an operational environment. The aim of this study was to compile areas of application of laserdata in forestry. Moreover to analyze costs and accessibility of laserdata. The goal was to provide private forest owners information to support assessments of possible benefits of laserdata. Data produced by Skogsstyrelsen and SLU seems to be useful for private forest owners. These data i.e. includes maps of digital terrain models, tree heights, stand volumes, tree diameters, basal areas and biomass. Today, the costs for airborne laser scanning are high for the private forest owners. Perhaps co- ordinations between forest owner organizations and other timber buying companies could solve this problem.
