In recent years, small-footprint full-waveform airborne laser scanning has become readily available and established for vegetation studies in the fields of forestry, agriculture and urban studies. Independent of the field of application and the derived final product, each study uses features to classify a target object and to assess its characteristics (e.g., tree species). These [...]

Within the 3D-MAPP project we currently developed a workflow and a web based tool, that allow volunteers (and experts) to classiffy 3D point clouds in just a few seconds. The approach combines the point cloud interpretation skills of humans and the scalability of crowdsourcing. Furthermore, crowdsourced geographic information can be of high value to automated [...]
