Introduction

Management of Forestry involves broad range of natural resources within a forested area. We all agree Forestry is complex, dynamic, and multidimensional. GIS technology profoundly and positively impacts the way land managers, timber managers, and forestry specialists manage timber resources. Having accurate geographical information about land is critical to making informed decisions about how to manage it.  Digital maps can be linked to relational databases that store baseline data, topography information, site documentation, and aerial digital photography. Designing and implementing a comprehensive GIS plan is the foundation for sound forest management and wildlife management decisions.  Additionally, a GIS plan is an integral part of developing a forest management plan.

Duration

10 Days

Who Should Attend

People who require additional skills like Forest Planners, foresters, forest conservation technicians.
