English abstract:
This document gives an overview of the OEWI toolbox software package developed by the Institute of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (I.P.F.) of the Vienna University of Technology, Austria, for the Department of Forest Inventory at the Federal Research and Training Centre for Forests, Natural Hazards and Landscape (BFW), Austria. The package includes tools for the pre-processing of laser scanning and forest inventory (FI) data, the co-registration of both, the calibration of spatial downscaling models for estimating growing stock, and routines for (cross-)validating available growing stock maps. The current document describes the handling and input parameters of the single routines even as the underlying theoretical basis.

The OEWI Toolbox was developed within the framework of the ÖWI-Regio project "Downscaling of forest inventory data by means of airborne laser scanning methods" funded by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management (BMLFUW).
The routines were written in the IDL language making use of some predefined ENVI routines. An installation of both IDL (6.0 or higher) and ENVI (4.0 or higher) are therefore necessary. We are still working on the OEWI toolbox, so if you find any bugs or have suggestions for improvement, you are kindly invited to report them to Wouter Dorigo (wd@ipf.tuwien.ac.at; +43 (0)1-58801-12243). No rights can be claimed from the use of the software
