readmeHP.pdf              Detailed features and installation guide


Binaries contain the following files:


    MAIN
        GFA
   
SOLAR RADIATION 
        PARCLR, PARHOR, PARSOC, 
SUNFLK
    CANOPY STRUCTURE

        READPHOT, OPENNESS, STATSPH
        LAISTS,
LAINRC, LAIMIL, LAILANG, LANG, LAIMLR, TRANSLAI
        LAICMP, LAICAM, LOGCAM
        PCS


These command-line programs are stand-alone. They can be extracted from the archives. GFA is the core program. It extracts gap fraction and gap size data from digital (or digitized) images in BMP format. All other programs use gap fraction data and/or gap size data created by GFA. Batch processing of any number of HP is easy under Windows, Mac OSX, and UNIX as well.

The manual, user's guide and programs documentation, is composed of three parts: (i) General, (ii) Sun files, (iii) Structure files. <readmeHP.pdf> explains how to install and use the programs.
