ForestTools 1.0.1 (2023-09-27)

Add additional tests and fixed a few bugs.

ForestTools 1.0.0 (2023-04-10)

Replaced raster, sf, and rgeos dependencies with terra and sf.

Performance improvements for glcm. Tests indicate it’s now running 2.7x faster than before.

Removed glcm_img. If you would like to generate GLCM statistics for a single, unsegmented image, simply use glcm without a segs argument.

Removed sp_summarise. Other packages offered better, more flexible options for summarizing tree-level information by geographical units. If you thought this tool was useful and would like me to restore it, please let me know.

ForestTools 0.2.6 (2021-09-21)

Behaviour change for gclm: images are now discretized BEFORE segmentation. Note that this will impact the results returned by the function.

ForestTools 0.2.5 (2021-09-09)

Added glcm_img to allow GLCM statistics to be computed for an entire unsegmented image.

ForestTools 0.2.4 (2021-04-13)

The radiomics package is no longer maintained, so with permission from the author, Joel Carlson, I’ve integrated the code for computing GLCM statistics into this library

ForestTools 0.2.1


New function:

ForestTools 0.2.0


Although this can cause backward compatibility issues, I felt it was necessary to rename the following functions:

Reasons for the changes are:

  1. To follow the convention of avoiding capitalized function names.
  2. To bring more specificity to the underlying algorithms involved.
  3. To credit the developers of said algorithms by using the names assigned to them.
  4. To acknowledge the fact that alternative algorithms are available for both finding trees and segmenting crowns.

In addition, I’ve made the following changes to vwf (formerly TreetopFinder):

ForestTools 0.1.5

ForestTools 0.1.4

ForestTools 0.1.2

ForestTools 0.1.1

ForestTools 0.1.0
