&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Citation&lt;/strong&gt; Applied Geospatial Research Group. (2020). &lt;em&gt;Seismic Line Mapper: A tool for enhanced delineation and attribution of linear disturbances in forests&lt;/em&gt; [Computer software]. Calgary, AB, Canada.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Purpose / Description&lt;/strong&gt; SLM is a series of script tools for facilitating the high-resolution mapping and studying of seismic lines (petroleum exploration corridors in forested areas) via processing canopy height models (LiDAR or photogrammetry derived raster images where pixel-values represent the ground-height of vegetation).&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Motivation&lt;/strong&gt; Given that the process of manually digitizing detailed small-scale (boreal) seismic lines is slow and prone to human error, a semi-automated solution is preferred for large-scale application areas. Additionally, high-resolution CHMs allow for improved seismic line spatial analysis.&lt;/p&gt;
