I am trying to find the best method for calculating accurate volume for fruit trees. The measurement will be based on the leaf canopy area. When I do the analysis in P4D mapper using the most dense point cloud based on drone photogrammetry, all volume is calculated from a “pile” shape but trees taper in at the bottom.
Attached is where I am at with it. I have raised the altitude to reduce the “pile” interpretation of the shape.
I can also remove the ground layer and only have the 3D tree canopy surface but I can’t see a way to measure it.
Does someone have a solution for me please.
