Classifying and evaluating the structure of tropical forest plant biomes based on up-to-date remote sensing data, remains a great challenge due to the species diversity, changes in the stages of seasonal growth. Remote sensing has long been a useful tool for classification and assessment of vegetation. For data from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), the ability to receive high-resolution data also partly solves this problem. The development of vegetation based on natural conditions includes: topographic, geomorphology, geologic conditions, climate, human impacts. Based on the red-green-blue colour model (RGB) obtained from UAV, analysis of VARI (visible atmospherically resistant Index) and TGI (triangulation greenness index), combined with the development characteristics of each group and type of biomes on different topography and geologic types, the researchers were able to give some characteristics of some tropical forest vegetation in Ngoc Linh Nature Reserve, Kon Tum province, Vietnam.
