A method for determination of economical forest management planning data by means of aerial photographs and geographical information systems

A method for determination of economical forest management planning data by means of aerial photographs and geographical information systems

Rapport fra Skogforsk ( 4): 29 pp.

An integrated method was developed for determination of gross value and logging costs for individual mature forest stands by means of aerial photograph interpretation, digital elevation models (DEM) and geographical information systems. Computation of gross value as well as logging costs were based on the so-called 'mean tree' of a stand, i.e. a tree defined by mean diameter by basal area and Lorey's mean height.
