Welcome to the latest issue of Foresttech.News.
Can you believe we are already in the second quarter of 2023? Last month we posted an early expression of interest in being part of November’s ForestTECH 2023 event series being run in both New Zealand and Australia. Based on that great response, we’re deep into the programme design and look forward to releasing further details shortly. If you are keen still on putting in a request to present (or to save an exhibition space) at this event, please get in touch with us ASAP so you don’t miss out!
In this edition of ForestTECH News, we’ll be covering:
- Artificial intelligence is as big as the agricultural revolution or the industrial revolution.
- New advancements in satellite uplink centres are poised to revolutionize GPS accuracy, with major implications for the forestry industry.
- New virtual reality project at the University of South Australia aims to enhance forestry education and training through immersive experiences.
- Finnish AI forestry company, CollectiveCrunch, is now expanding in the United States and Latin America.
- The successful maiden flight of the KEA Atmos, a stratospheric aircraft designed for monitoring forests and collecting environmental data.
- The use of high-resolution aerial imagery is playing an increasingly critical role in monitoring and assessing natural disasters, such as floods and cyclones, to aid in disaster response and recovery efforts. We have two articles covering Cyclone Gabrielle’s impact.
- A group of Canadian university students have developed and launched a satellite to monitor wildfires and help improve early detection and response to these devastating events.
- DroneSeed continues to grow their supply chain capabilities by acquiring California’s largest tree nursery.
So, sit back, grab a drink, and join us as we delve into the latest news and developments in the world of remote sensing, forest data capture and tree crop management.
