Information about the current state of and recent changes in landscape-creating elements and scenery (such as forests, lakes, meadows, etc.) are important basics for environmental assessment on different administrative levels.
During the last few years airborne as well as terrestrial laser scanning techniques have developed tremendously and now play an important role in landscape assessment. In addition to airborne laser scanning which has been successfully introduced as a means of collecting information on a regional level, terrestrial laser scanners can be used on a smaller scale to derive higher precision information.
Recent instruments, processing methods and their possibilities for use in forest and landscape assessment will be presented at this international conference.
The conference is regarded as a follow-up of the ScanLaser meeting held in Umeå, September 2003. It is aspired that terrestrial and airborne laser scanning are considered in a balanced way.
