Abstract: 
Airborne laser scanning (ALS) is increasingly applied as a tool for extracting forest
inventory data. In recent years most applications for the assessment of forest
standing volume rely on a single tree recognition approach, which generally gives
satisfactory results in coniferous forests. The aim of this paper is to apply a rasterbased
approach for the assessment of forest standing volume based on field
measurements and a Digital Canopy Model (DCM) derived from ALS data. In
addition, we explore the potential of hot spot analysis of DCM data for automatic
forest gap detection, as a means to improve the accuracy of the estimation of forest
standing volume by traditional estimation methods.
