WebCorky is a web adaptadion of a desktop tool present insIMfLOR(Faias, 2012) to project cork caliber samples of a Quercus suber L. stand. The application uses equations developed by Almeida et al. (2010).
WebCorky has a simple sample and multisample projection interface. The latter alows the classification of the samples evolution in time, in order to support a decision on when is the best time to debark the stand.
The classification uses the standard industry nomenclature for cork caliber:
|Class Name||Nr Lines (1 line=2.256mm)||milimeters|
|Delgadinha||>=6 and <10||>=13.54 and <22.56|
|Delgada||>=10 and <12||>=22.56 and <27.07|
|Meia Marca||>=12 and <14||>=27.07 and <31.58|
|Marca||>=14 and <18||>=31.58 and <40.61|
|Grossa||<=18 and <24||>=40.61 and <54.14|
