Is it time to branch out?

Christmas Data

For the 2014 holiday season, we sought to analyze some common festive greens. We imaged a branch of a Norway spruce and Fraser fir using a micro-CT scanner to identify the number of branches, the average branch thickness, and average branch length. To perform the analysis, we first applied a 3D thinning algorithm to create a skeleton of the CT volume object. We then applied a nodal analysis to quantify the average branch thickness and branch length for both branches. All image analysis routines were full automated and objective.
