GIS technology profoundly and positively impacts the way land managers, timber managers, and forestry specialists manage timber resources. Esri`s GIS software helps foresters and land managers meet the needs of their forests, the demands of society, and the pressures of economic efficiency.
Aerial surveys have become an integral part of forestland management, in large part replacing extensive field surveys. With current digital mapping capabilities, acquiring fast, accurate imagery is now not only essential, but also cost effective. Whether you need data for stand updating, depletion mapping or defoliation and damage assessment, you face the challenge of choosing the best technology and service for your investment.
To accommodate your forestry business requirements, the GeoVantage approach makes...

Dead trees and wood from forest management can be chipped and dried for gasification. The electricity generated can offset electrical costs while the consumption of waste wood offsets disposal costs.
Disposal by gasification also has far lower particulate emissions than controlled burns and a lower carbon footprint than decomposition, since methane emissions from anaerobic decomposition are avoided. Decomposing wood reverts all of its carbon content to CO2, but gasification sequesters a portion of it as charcoal...
Forestry, by its very nature, takes workers into tough outdoor environments. We`ve had customers use our devices for timber cruising, GPS navigation, wildlife surveying and other types of forest management. From silviculture to wildfire management, the mapping, imaging and reporting capabilities of today’s rugged handhelds are an essential part of keeping our forests healthy — and forest workers efficient.

An easy-to-use e.Cognition ruleset to fully measure tree parameters.
This ruleset has been developed and applied during the course of various projects with a large German State Forest Administration and other private forest owners. It is designed to create a polygon shapefile representing single tree crowns. It can process all types of forest stands, including very young and mature stands simultaneously. During the processing, a stand is divided into homogeneous groups based on tree height. Each group is then...
