live logo CAMPINO skeletons live logo


CAMPINO is a skeletonization method, especially designed for skeletonizing natural trees. Below we give links to four 3D examples. All examples show a skeleton of an apple tree of about 2 meter high, as represented by a point cloud of 7 219 points. The point cloud was obtained by the IMAGER 5003 terrestrial laser scanner of Zoller + Fröhlich.

The first skeleton was derived manually, the other three were automatically derived by the CAMPINO method at the indicated resolution. Except for the skeletons, in dark green, the original point cloud is shown as well. The point cloud points are colored with respect to their distance in cm to the skeleton.
