To accurately count plants in SlantView, leaves from neighboring plants MUST NOT be overlapping when viewed from above.
SlantView Population Analysis processing
includes four main map products:
Population map, Plant size map, Emergence fraction, and Weed map.
For accurate population counts, individual plants must not be overlapping with neighbors. If population density numbers are low, look at the individual plant detections in the Image Window. If neighboring plants are overlapping, SlantView may have detected them as a single plant as shown here:
The Plant size and Emergence fraction maps are still highly applicable after leaves have begun to overlap, and the field matures past the appropriate stage for Population mapping.
