MESP Training

This training took place the 2-3 april 2015. On the one hand, it introduced the morphological bases needed for reading and measuring plants, and some plant architectural notions. On the other hand, Xplo and his features are presented to build a vegetal structure formal representation. This training was illustrated on pratical works : students had to describe, to draw and to measure pieces of walnut trees, then to encode them in the software.

This training was dedicated to scientists and students working on plant structure. 11 participants were present during this session.
