Aerial Photo Biomass Equation
Aerial photo volume tables have been used by foresters and others to estimate board feet and cubic feet of standing timber gross volume in the United States for a number of years (Paine 1981). These tables have been very useful to assist in the stratfication of timber stands, thereby making ground sampling more efficient.
