Forest Mapper is a smartphone app that attempts to identify trees from images of the trunk, and stores the identification alongside the location to enable the efficient mapping of forests. The identification comes from a convolutional neural network — BarkNet — trained on crowd-sourced images of tree trunks. Phones with LIDAR sensing also… Read More App: “Forest Mapper”
