This part of the application allows you to define the section of the tree stem for which you want to calculate volume.
For each volume attribute, you must select how to define the top and base of the section. There are several options for top and base definition:
The attributes (stem sections) you define can be used for volume calculation. You can select which attributes you want to calculate by using the checkbox next to each of the volume attributes. If you try to calculate volume without selecting any volume attributes, volume will be calculated for every volume attribute that is currently defined.
Your defined volume attributes are saved on the server and bound to your browser. If you want to make a backup of your volume attributes or if you want to use your volume attriubutes on another computer (or in another browser), you can use the Export and Import functions.
Volume attribute definitions are exported to a file TreeModel_Attributes.xml, which can then be imported on another computer. Please note that importing volume attributes will overwrite any volume attributes that are currently defined.
Using this part of the application, you can calculate volumes of tree stems for your defined volume attributes.
For each tree, you must provide at least three tree attributes:
You can also provide additional tree attributes to make the volume calculation more accurate. These attributes are optional:
Single tree calculation allows you to quickly calculate volume of a single tree, by simply filling the form and pressing the Calculate volume button. Single tree calculation also produces a diagram of the calculated stem profile.
Batch processing allows you to calculate volumes for lager number of trees at once. Tree data must be stored in Microsoft Excel table (*.xlsx or *.xls file). Batch processing is done in several steps:
