ForestTECH News Issue 12 Summary

In ForestTECH, Issue Summary by FIEA

Welcome to the next issue of News.

This regular update continues to generate keen interest and contributions from the industry across Australasia. Welcome also to our North and South American readers who attended the first ForestTECHx event that we ran in Vancouver a month ago. Readership continues to climb and we’ve already got well over 1000 forest resource managers, inventory foresters, mapping and GIS specialists and researchers who are subscribing to the monthly tech update. Thanks for your support and input.

So, what’s being covered this month? Last month we provided an update on recent testing of state-of-the-art sensor equipment that was being mounted on UAV prototypes for an in-forest, NSW forest research project. This month we have a video with some of the key players outlining the project in more detail.

Other key stories include an update from Scion on a phenotyping platform being worked on to determine the drivers of tree growth and, looking to the future, changes that are occurring in mapping and surveying and some of the mobile trends driving the move to a paperless forest.

Enjoy this month’s tech update.
