Software

I have a keen interest in software development with regard to forest inventory systems. I am currently developing and maintaining several packages for use in forest resource analysis.

All of these packages are open source and free to use. If you are interested in collaborating please to do not hesitate to reach me at any one of these contacts.

Python

pyfor: A LiDAR processing package written in the Python programming language.

laxpy: A small package for Python users to access the spatial indexing (.lax) files generated by LASlib. This makes clipping .las files much more memory efficient.

R

spsys: A package that estimates the sampling variance for two-dimensional systematic sampling designs that are frequently used in environmental and forestry surveys.

sptotal: A package for estimating population totals of finite populations of spatially correlated data. Developed in conjunction with Dr. Matthew Higham and Dr. Jay Ver Hoef.
