Samenvatting

The dataset contains tree height data collected in 200 mangrove and non-mangrove trees sampled in various sites in Malaysia. Different height measurement methods were performed, including visual measurements (stick, thumb rule) and precision field instruments (clinometer, laser rangefinder and altimeter), which were compared against benchmark values obtained using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and a Leica distometer. The core data have been analysed and interpreted in the paper by Saliu et al. ‘’An accuracy analysis of mangrove tree height mensuration using forestry techniques, hypsometers and UAVs ’’ [1], in which the accuracy of each method for tree height measurement was discussed.
