Abstract:

Three-dimensional 3D point cloud models of trees were developed using the software packages Maya and MATLAB. These models are to be assembled into a forest scene that can be used for producing simulated Laser Detection and Ranging LADAR imagery of objects obscured beneath the canopy. This document describes the approach for modelling the trees using Maya then importing and completely reconstructing the models in a custom 3D point cloud format in MATLAB.
