&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Credits&lt;/strong&gt; This tool is part of the &lt;a href="http://www.beraproject.org/"&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Boreal Ecosystem Recovery and Assessment (BERA)&lt;/strong&gt; Project&lt;/a&gt;, and was developed by the &lt;a href="https://www.appliedgrg.ca/"&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Applied Geospatial Research Group&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Citation&lt;/strong&gt; Applied Geospatial Research Group. (2020). &lt;em&gt;Forest 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; FLM is a series of script tools for facilitating the high-resolution mapping and studying of forest lines via processing canopy height models (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) forest 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 forest line spatial analysis.&lt;/p&gt;
