Tree crown mapping based on Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) towards a green-sustainable residential. Journal of the Malaysian Institute of Planners, 19 (2). pp. 97-107. ISSN 0128-0945 (2021)


Tree crown plays a crucial role in creating urban characters and spatial arrangements of living environment towards a green-sustainable city. It provides the fundamental needs for human’s living quality and health conditions such as improving water quality, preserving energy, minimising greenhouse gasses, and beautification and comfortable purposes. Therefore, there is a need for urban planners to recognise its importance and plan for it wisely. This paper attempts to demonstrate a mapping tree crowns for a case of the residential neighbourhood using Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) based GIS technologies. Four main stages involved in a mapping tree crown process namely: flight planning, data acquisition, data processing and analyses and results. As a result, this paper able to show the capabilities of the technologies in measuring and mapping tree crowns for the residential neighbourhood. Moreover, it provides urban planners with informative scenario of the tree planting and clarifies its importance for future planning and benefits – in creating and promoting a green-sustainable and healthy living environment.
