How to contribute to this project - Citation

The mandatory citation for using this software is:

Hackenberg, J.; Spiecker, H.; Calders, K.; Disney, M.; Raumonen, P. SimpleTree —An Efficient Open Source Tool to Build Tree Models from TLS Clouds. Forests 2015, 6, 4245-4294.
A bibtex file is here.

Additionally another citation can be given to the paper where the method is presented firstly:

Hackenberg, J.; Morhart, C.; Sheppard, J.; Spiecker, H.; Disney, M. Highly Accurate Tree Models Derived from Terrestrial Laser Scan Data: A Method Description. Forests 2014, 5, 1069-1105.
A bibtex file is here.

The method was firstly validated on AGB ground truth data here:

Hackenberg, J.; Wassenberg, M.; Spiecker, H.; Sun, D. Non Destructive Method for Biomass Prediction Combining TLS Derived Tree Volume and Wood Density. Forests 2015, 6, 1274-1300.
A bibtex file is here.

PCL gets credit by citing this one:

Rusu, R.B.; Cousins, S. 3D is here: Point Cloud Library (PCL). Robotics and Automation (ICRA), 2011 IEEE International Conference on 2011, doi: 10.1109/ICRA.2011.5980567.

    How to contribute to this project - Common publication

If you get support by my person which exceeds some introductionary help during a publication process, please think about offering me a co-authorship, if you consider the support impactful.

    How to contribute to this project - Data sharing

If you have point clouds, which you already used for a publication, you can put them under open data license and make them available to this project. I will give a link to the citation and you and/or your institution will be the licence holder.

    How to contribute to this project - Developing and Bug Reporting

Support for renewing the complete software code to fulfil a high standard in software design is appreciated. This is a beta version of the software, which needs to be completely re-worked. Bug reports are useful to make the software better. You should be able to reproduce the error and sent me the instructions how to produce the error for now by email.

    How to contribute to this project - Feedback

Feedback is really important to me. I can't improve this project, if I dont get the feedback from end-users.
