Unlocking the true value of data
Rotorua 15-16 November, Melbourne 21-22 November
The quality and quantity of data being collected through an array of new sensors and platforms has continued to skyrocket, so-much-so that the main task now being grappled with is how best to use the collected data and convert it into something usable for all stakeholders.
New tools and technologies have been developed, in-forest trials by leading technology providers along with forestry companies have been completed and are being built into day-to-day forest planning and operations. Numerous research projects have also been completed and are ready to be presented to local companies.
ForestTECH 2017 will provide local forestry companies with a timely and independent overview of new data collection tools, systems for better measuring, managing and analysing this information and forestry apps that have been developed, are available, and can add value, both operationally and financially, to local forestry companies.
The focus for this year’s series will be on “unlocking the true value of data” for forest operations.
Key themes for this year’s event include:
• Storage, processing management of “big data”
• Analysing and using harvester data for inventory management
• The practical application of automation, robotics and sensors by forest managers
• Integrating virtual and augmented reality into forestry operations and
• Results and lessons from reconciling remote sensing data in the field
• New innovations in mobile forest apps and collection tools
• Mobile communications advances more remote locations
• Workflow solutions for data collected from airborne and UAV systems
• Changing skill sets required by today’s forest resource managers.
• New mapping and GIS applications in
