Shortwave Radiation Calculation for Forest Plots Using Airborne LiDAR Data and Computer Graphics

Figure 3

Triangulated forest canopy surfaces composed of many geometric primitives substituting for various tree crowns. (a) Sampling points were distributed on each tree crown and projected onto the plane to optimize the triangulation. (b–d) The triangulation results for the simulated geometric primitives representing each tree crown constituting the three experimental plots.
