By using Digital Photogrammetric technics we can use AIMS1 high resolution images to measure forest metrics like tree heights, canopy cover, crown diameter, etc. measuring trees.
Trees measured in the field have been detected in the images and their heights measured in a 3D environment using ERDAS Photogrammetry Suite and Stereo Analyst.
Good relationships have been found between measurements in the ground and measurements done remotely using AIMS1.
