The goal is to provide easy to use tools that enable foresters to know the character of their tree-stands at any given time. The power of the solution is the technology combined with our software that integrates very complex modules together so that clear pictures of your forest can be produced in the master GIS. Further, once this very accurate and up-to-date forest information is loaded in the GIS, it is the customized interface that enables plans to be built, maps to plotted and good management to ultimately occur. This full enterprise solution integrates all aspects of a digital forestry management system.
- A forest is not static, it’s constantly evolving and changing with time, weather, etc. We provide the ability to plan based on data we have today but also to frequently recollect the inventory information to actively manage forestlands in the future.
- Use of state-of-the-art data collection intelligence including GIS, UAV, GPS, and LiDAR/Near InfraRed/Thermal Imaging sensors (remote sensing) and integrated together with our custom software provides a solution that is both cost effective and useable.
- Our team or yours : We can provide the service to do the inventory or we can provide the tools, training and support to enable local, national and global experts to proactively manage their existing forestlands with the Whiteout Solutions automated technology. All software runs on common off the shelf hardware.
In the field:
Whiteout Solutions UAV coupled with LiDAR sensor, InfraRed sensor and Thermal Imaging cameras is a game changer for Timber cruising.
Building the inventory/ Digital Scaling
Digital scaling done with Whiteout Solutions custom GIS software built on ESRI ArcGIS. This turn-key process enables stewards to easily assess the data acquired in field. Automated outputs include timber harvest planning recommendations, maps that show where the trees are, their measurement, their species, and their health, at a minimum. Assessments can also include maps showing roads (existing and proposed), wetlands, undergrowth and wildlife layers draped over digital elevation models (DEM).
