Increasing utilization and productivity in forestry with LiDAR and GIS
Authors: Kevin Lim, Chad St.Amand
This presentation will showcase the ArcGIS platform in action for forestry. First, how forest inventory metrics predicted from LiDAR data can be used with mobile GIS to increase utilization during forest harvesting operations will be demonstrated. Secondly, how productivity can be quantified through tracking forestry equipment using mobile GIS and ArcGIS Online be illustrated. Increasing utilization and productivity are key to forest companies remaining competitive in the forest economy.
