`lidaRtRee` is an `R` package that provides functions for **forest analysis using airborne laser scanning** (LiDAR remote sensing) data: tree detection / segmentation and area-based approach. It includes complementary steps for forest mapping: extraction of both physical (gaps, edges, trees) and statistical features from LiDAR data, model calibration with ground reference, and maps export.

# Installation

* `R` >= 4.0.3 recommended, package `lidR` >= 3.1.0 required
* **build latest version from source** with the `devtools` package by running in an `R` console: `devtools::install_git("https://gitlab.irstea.fr/jean-matthieu.monnet/lidaRtRee/")`

# Tutorials

**Tutorials** using `lidaRtRee` functions are available on the [lidaRtRee_tutorials](https://gitlab.irstea.fr/jean-matthieu.monnet/lidartree_tutorials/) repository, as `Rmarkdown` files, `html` and `pdf` files, and including datasets to run the code. The [wiki](https://gitlab.irstea.fr/jean-matthieu.monnet/lidartree_tutorials/-/wikis/home) presents the different tutorials:
