Edge and tree detection from three-dimensional unorganised point clouds from terretrial laser scanners
MetadataShow full item record
A method for edge detection in unorganised point clouds from terrestrial laser scanners without preprocessed triangle meshes is proposed. The method is based on geometric primitives such as change of geometric curvature and surface normal vector. As an application of the proposed edge detection, we introduce an algorithm for tree detection. Using the fact that trees have higher curvature points than human-made structures, e.g. buildings, they can be extracted from the point cloud. Higher curvature points are used as seeds for a region-growing method to detect whole trees with the aid of a reasonable termination condition.

Distribution of airway narrowing responses across generations and at branching points, assessed in vitro by anatomical optical coherence tomographyNoble, P.; McLaughlin, R.; West, A.; Becker, S.; Armstrong, J.; McFawn, P.; Eastwood, Peter; Hillman, D.; Sampson, D.; Mitchell, H. (2010)Background: Previous histological and imaging studies have shown the presence of variability in the degree of bronchoconstriction of airways sampled at different locations in the lung (i.e., heterogeneity). Heterogeneity ...

A new bipolar ice core record of volcanism from WAIS divide and NEEM and implications for climate forcing of the last 2000 yearsSigl, Michael; McConnell, Joseph R.; Layman, Lawrence; Maselli, Olivia; McGwire, Ken; Pasteris, Daniel; Dahl-Jensen, Dorthe; Steffensen, Jorgen Peder; Vinther, Bo; Edwards, Ross; Mulvaney, Robert; Kipfstuhl, Sepp (2013)Volcanism is a natural climate forcing causing short-term variations in temperatures. Histories of volcanic eruptions are needed to quantify their role in climate variability and assess human impacts. We present two new ...
