Realistic plant models are important for leaf area and plant volume estimation, reconstruction of growth canopies, structure generation of the plant, reconstruction of leaf surfaces and agrichemical spray droplet modelling. This article investigates several different scanning devices for obtaining a three dimensional digitisation of plant leaves with a point cloud resolution of 200-500μm. The devices tested were a Roland mdx-20, Microsoft Kinect, Roland lpx-250, Picoscan and Artec S. The applicability of each of these devices for scanning plant leaves is discussed. The most suitable tested digitisation device for scanning plant leaves is the Artec S scanner.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
