Iterative and hierarchical forest plot reconstruction from terrestrial laser scanning point clouds for Canopy Radiative Transfer Modelling.
Results of the phenoSAT-alpha project will be presented at Silvilaser during the ISPRS Geospatial Week 2015 in La Grande Motte (France).
phenoSAT-alpha intermediate results will be presented and discussed at the 35th Annual EARSeL Symposium in Stockholm.

The consortium of phenoSAT-α met in Vienna discussing the current project progress and future perspectives. Topics presented were the applications of phenology research, advancements in 3D tree modelling and radiative transfer modelling, and their implementation for satellite remote sensing of vegetation. The meeting was attended by representatives of the Institute of Interdisciplinary Mountain Research (Austrian Academy of Sciences), Institute of Geography (University of Innsbruck), Department of Climatology (Zentralanstalt für Meteorologie und Geodynamik), The Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) and the Research Group Remote Sensing (Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation, Vienna University of Technology), who kindly hosted the meeting.
Preliminary results of phenoSAT-alpha have been presented at the international conference ForestSAT 2014 in Riva (Italy). It was a great opportunity to discuss the further project progress with different experts and users in the field of forestry and remote sensing.
Realistic modelling of larix decidua trees has been automated and is applied for larger patches.
The acquired terrestrial laser scanning point clouds have been registered, preprocessed and finally used for realistic 3D tree modelling of larix decidua. The models will be soon ready for radiative transfer modelling.
The project phenoSAT has been presented as a poster at the ISPRS Technical Commission V Symposium “Close-range imaging, ranging and applications” in Riva, Italy.
