SkyForest™ estimates timber volume in 20m X 20m pixels across large landscapes. Volume is classified into hardwood, softwood and mixed wood volume. The image below shows softwood volume (m3/ha) on the left and canopy height on the right for the same area.
The image below shows how closely SkyForest™ timber volumes compare with stand boundaries derived manually through photo-interpretation. In contrast to photo-interpreted stand polygons, SkyForest™ provides detailed information in 20m pixels, rather than summaries of stands that are several hectares each, thus showing the variation within stands.
