Estimating and modelling biomass can be helpful for biomass management. It as also interesting to calculate the amount of biomass in a certain area for carbon implications, as indicated by the Kyoto protocol. In the past, remote sensing techniques have been able to estimate biomass by using reflectance in the both the red and the near infrared wavelengths. Nowadays the sensors in the digital photogrammetric cameras gather information not only in the visible wavelengths but also in the near infrared wavelengths, which provides the possibility of using digital photogrammetric data for environmental studies.
