Event description

Description


Welcome to the joint CARISMA and EFINORD-SNS LiDAR workshop
from 26 to 28 September 2016 in Ås, Norway.

 

CARISMA is a virtual Center of Advanced Research for the innovative use of 3D remote sensing in mapping of forest and landscape attributes based on national forest inventories funded by SNS. The network improves the coordination of research on the use of 3D remote sensing data in the Nordic national forest inventories (NFIs). See http://www.nibio.no/en/prosjekter/carisma for more information.

The EFINORD-SNS LiDAR network (Large scale 3D LiDAR data for wall-to-wall assessment of forest structures and resources) aims at strengthening research regarding the utilization of large scale laser scanning data for assessment of forest structures, functions and resources.

The two networks have partly overlapping participants and objectives. They therefore organize a back-to-back workshop.

The first two days focus more on CARISMA topics such as mapping and estimation of forest resources in NFIs (please contact Johannes.Breidenbach@nibio.no if you have comments) whereas the last day focuses more on LiDAR applications (please contact Thomas Nord-Larsen tnl@ign.ku.dk if you have comments).

Topics of the workshop are

  • Large scale mapping of forest resources
  • Estimators of interest for NFIs if auxiliary information is available
  • New approaches for tree or plot-level measurements (e.g., TLS, photogrammetry)

If you like to give a presentation, please send your title and abstract (max 250 words)  (we may not be able to include all presentations) to johannes.breidenbach@nibio.no

Please indicate which days you will participate.

Venue: Store møterom, Høgskoleveien 8, 1430 Ås

Registration is open until 20 August 2016. Please contact Cathrine Lill Broch, cathrine.lill.broch@nibio.no if you have questions on accommodation and travel arrangements.

A contingent of rooms is reserved for special price at Ski Thon Hotel. Price per night and room is 1169,- NOK. Please book the room via email (ski.booking@thonhotels.no) or phone +47 64853500 and give the following booking code: 250916CARISMA.

Directions from Thon Hotel in Ski to the venue can be found here:
