adam-erickson/gapfraction: Functions for processing airborne LiDAR scans of forests
Version 1.0.0

This package is designed for forestry applications. It includes functions for creating raw and fast-pit-free canopy height models (CHMs) that can be processed with included hierarchical variable-window and watershed segmentation tree crown detection functions. The package includes additional functions to estimate gap fraction (canopy closure), fractional canopy cover, leaf area index (LAI), apparent clumping index, and a number of other canopy metrics. The package includes four common lens models used in hemispherical photography, as well as functions for plotting.
