Danish KU Forest Inventory – Tree Heights Now Available Directly in windPRO

A map of the forest heights for Denmark – derived from a dataset developed by the Danish University of Copenhagen – Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management – is now available as an online data service for users of windPRO 3.3+.

If you are working at forested sites in Denmark, then you can use these forest height data as input for the dedicated forest models – that is within the displacement height calculator and the Objective Roughness Approach (ORA). Both forest models are available in windPRO 3.3.

The data is available in a 25m grid resolution and is accessed from the ‘elevation grid object’ with data-type set to ‘Heights above terrain (a.g.l) for elements’.

The picture above shows part of the Danish KU Forest Map – the tree heights – with existing turbines at Klosterheden Plantation – between Struer and Lemvig. The background image is one of the new dynamic maps in windPRO – the Danish Orthophoto Mosaic from 2018 in 0.5m resolution.
