Increase forest profits.
Sustainable forest management is a delicate balance of timber operations and ecosystem conservation. With GIS you can do both effectively. Create maps that show the spatial relationships between harvestable tree species and other features such as mills, and steep slopes. You can also create maps that show ecologically sensitive riparian areas as well as change over time. Effectively share diverse data between departments. GIS helps you collaborate with stakeholders to develop land-use strategies that meet multiple objectives.
