Indirect georeferencing of terrestrial laser scanning data using control lines
An indirect method for the georeferencing of 3D point clouds obtained with terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) data using control lines is presented. This technique could be used for rapid data acquisition where resources do ...
Photogrammetric measurement of tree stems from vertical fisheye images
Forest variables are typically surveyed using sample plots, from which parameters for large areas are estimated. The diameter at breast height (DBH) is one of the main variables collected in the field and can be used with ...
Vertical optical scanning with panoramic vision for tree trunk reconstruction
This paper presents a practical application of a technique that uses a vertical optical flow with a fisheye camera to generate dense point clouds from a single planimetric station. Accurate data can be extracted to enable ...
A Temnospondyl Trackway from the Early Mesozoic of Western Gondwana and Its Implications for Basal Tetrapod Locomotion
(Public Library Of Science, 2014-08)
Background: Temnospondyls are one of the earliest radiations of limbed vertebrates. Skeletal remains of more than 190 genera have been identified from late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic rocks. Paleozoic temnospondyls comprise ...
March of the Titans: The Locomotor Capabilities of Sauropod Dinosaurs
(PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2013-10-30)
Sauropod dinosaurs are the largest terrestrial vertebrate to have lived on Earth. This size must have<br />posed special challenges for the musculoskeletal system. Scaling theory shows that body mass and hence the loads ...
