NEWFOR (NEW technologies for a better mountain FORest timber mobilization) is a research project funded by the alpine space programme. It brings together 14 institutes of the 6 countries of the alpine space with the aim of improving forest timber evaluation and mobilisation. The project considers the whole wood supply chain, from forests to wood yards, with a particular emphasis on new remote sensing technologies and geographical information systems. The project has begun in september 2011 for a 3 years duration.
Dear Visitor, The NEWFOR partners agreed on making the single tree detection benchmark dataset public. We believe that having such a dataset public is an important way to help researchers test their algorithms and compare them to existing ones, thus fostering new developments and their evaluation. The data of 15 different study areas in 5 …View full post
