3D Forest

We proudly present

3D FOREST


Tool for point cloud data processing from forest environment acquired by terrestrial laser scanner.

OUR STORY

Looking for software tool to analyse your TLS data? You just find one! We are glad to present you open-source software application for lidar data segmentation, visualization and export of trees with parameters. Lets start with image gallery and enjoy insight into old-growth forest where this application serve for study forest dynamic. Feel free to download and test it from download page. and leave comment or sugestion at our forum. We are using also ticket system for improvements and bug report.
Project 3D Forest started in year 2010 with my PhD study at Department of Forest Ecology of Public Research Institution of Landscape and Ornamental Gardering. In cooperation with Department of Geoinformation Technologies of Mendel University in Brno. Increasing need of tool for analyze real 3D dimensional data from forest environment was clear across all studies. After extensive searching for the best possible tool for acquiring and processing such data we found terrestrial laser data as the best solution for our needs. Only missing part was still processing tool so we decice to create one by ourself - 3D Forest.

WHY CHOOSE US?

Our application is free for all users. Thanks to licence GPL v3 we can publish our work with garanty that user will never pay for this piece of code.

Our team combine forest ecologists, foresters, GIS specialists, and programers to collect more information about old-growth forests. for more info please visit www.pralesy.cz.

We have a lots of ideas to improve 3D Forest to be the best tool for foresters and forest researchers using TLS technology.
