Sampling sites

Nirwood_01/ July 6, 2017

Recovering samples from differentes sites Sampling to test commercial devices with the aim of: To refine the methodology To evaluate the technological needs of NIRWOOD prototype To determinate the algorithm for predictive model Sampling in Xylotheques A xylotheque is a wood collection where you can find a large number of samples of different species from different origins. Sampling in big industrial sawmills We have chosen those sawmills working with a larger amount of commercial wood species and all of them with well-controled geographical origins. Sampling in small family-owned sawmills Small sawmills work with a short number of species and timber coming from very close areas (no more than 50km around), allowing us to ensure the origin of the wood. Sampling already sawn template and tropical timber One of our targets consists in the determination of spectral differences between the most variate wood species. Already sawn timber help us to collect samples from temperate and tropical species both in tangential and transverse sections Sampling on field Sampling fresh wood just extracted from the forest brings us the opportunity to
