Paper Abstract

Airborne laser scanning (ALS) is a popular tool for acquiring data for geographical and urban analysis, but also is increasingly used in measurements related to widely understood vegetation monitoring. Based on the application of the Multispectral Laser Reflectance Scanner (MLRS) developed and constructed at the Institute of Optoelectronics of the Military University of Technology, it is possible to analyze the vegetative status of plants. One of the most important parameters of such analysis is the distinction of plant health based on the density of foliage, as well as in terms of the occurrence of drying and wilting phenomena. The article presents and discusses changes in the reflectance spectra of healthy and wilting or drying plants. Also presented are examples of digital surface models, enriched with information on the condition of vegetation, obtained during one of the field tests of the MLRS scanner.
