&lt;em&gt;A tool for enhanced delineation and attribution of linear disturbances in forests&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;Copyright © 2021 Applied Geospatial Research Group&lt;/p&gt;
This tool is part of the &lt;a href=""&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=""&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Applied Geospatial Research Group&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;
Applied Geospatial Research Group. (2021). &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;
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;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Development History&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;li&gt;November, 2021: V1.2 Release Candidate public release, beta test, and this online documentation by [&lt;strong&gt;Richard Zeng&lt;/strong&gt;]&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;February, 2020: Beta public release, beta test, and this online documentation by &lt;a href=""&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Gustavo Lopes Queiroz&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;November, 2019: Workflow overhaul (least cost corridor &amp;amp; multiprocessing) by &lt;a href=""&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Gustavo Lopes Queiroz&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;November, 2018: First version in Arcpy by &lt;a href=""&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Silvia Losada&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;May, 2018: Initial concept (least cost path with ArcGIS model builder) by &lt;a href=""&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Sarah Cole&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/a&gt; and &lt;a href=""&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Jerome Cranston&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/li&gt;
There are major changes to the tools:&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;li&gt;File based approach is switched to memeory based to speedup the processing&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;ArcGIS Desktop is no longer supported. ArcGIS Pro is the only platform supported now.&lt;/li&gt;
