Count Trees with LP360’s New Individual Tree Segmentation Tool

Transform Your LiDAR Data into Actionable Insights on Tree Counts, Heights, and Locations

LP360 Drone's Individual Tree Segmentation (ITS) tool is a new addition to the Business Intelligence Add-on, designed specifically for forestry management and environmental monitoring. Leveraging advanced LiDAR data analysis, this tool can identify and catalog tree counts, locations, heights, and tree crowns across forested landscapes.

This video showcases the innovative ITS Tool and includes a demonstration in LP360 Drone. This new feature excels at determining tree counts, locations, heights, and tree crowns from LiDAR data, although it does not specify tree species. The tool efficiently creates a new LAS layer for visualizing individual trees and generates a point feature layer (in .shp or .csv format) detailing the location and height of each tree crown.
