Chestnut-leaved oak at Kew Gardens
Terrestrial LiDAR scan of a Quercus castaneifolia (chestnut-leaved oak) which is located in Kew Gardens, London. Using the TLS allowed us to accurately estimate the height as 36.48 m, previous estiamtes were ~35 m.
The tree was scanned using a RIEGL VZ400 with top-mounted RGB camera by Phil Wilkes (@kungphil) and Mathias Disney (@mathiasdisney) from UCL Geogrpahy (@UCLgeogrphy) and NCEO (@NCEOscience). Also used some code from Matheus Boni Vicari (@BoniVicari) to correct colours.
Original point cloud had 39M+ points but has been downsampled for SketchFab.
