3D accurate sample measurement system (LIDAR technology)
This equipment of very high technology allows 3D modeling of plant material (even branched out) with an accuracy of 4 to 6 mm. After treatment, the different measurements and allometric reports of the sample (percentage of leaves, branches, wood...) will be known with an unprecedented accuracy.
Moreover, this tool can be used both in the Biomass Platform for a given sample and in the field for a 3D panoramic image up to 50 m distance (tree and branch sizes, volume of different plant covers...).
