What is a Forest Mensurationist?
A forest mensurationist applies the science of measurement to quantify forest composition, structure and the goods and services forests provide. Grounded in geometry, sampling theory, statistics and ecology, a forest mensurationist describes the current status of trees. They also deal with measuring and predicting the growth of trees over time.
2nd North American Forest Mensurationists Conference
Postponed to 2022
The Southern Mensurationists group was reestablished in 1999. We are an informal group of forest biometricians, mensurationists, statisticians, mathematicians, modelers, computational foresters, and other practitioners.
The Northeastern Mensurationist Organization (NEMO) was organized by foresters with an interest in quantitative methods to provide a place where, once a year, we could get together and share some of the important research, policy, and practical concerns in the northeast.
The Western Mensurationists are an informal group of Forest Mensurationists, Biometricians and practitioners that meet annually to discuss issues relating to the measuring forest resources.
The 2021 Western Mensurationists conference will take place virtually. Click here for more information.
OLI is focused on exchanging information on the operational or near-operational usage of remote sensing technologies in forest inventory and mapping applications.
