Tree inventory map overlaid on ladar height map.

A tree inventory system uses vehicle-mounted sensors to automatically count and map the locations of trees in an orchard.

A probabilistic model combines ladar data of the trees with expected tree spacing to generate the tree inventory. This approach works both when tree boundaries are visible and when the tree canopies blend together. The results are within 1% agreement with manually-collected tree counts.
