Revolutionize Forest Management: The Transformative Role of Drones & GIS

The revolution of drones has arrived in the forest. Combine this with Geographic Information System (GIS) technology and the result is a sophisticated set of capabilities that transform forest mapping and management.

As the use of drones increases, there is a need for integrated solutions that can provide a complete, end-to-end workflow to capture high-resolution imagery and diverse data in real-time, process it, and generate useful insights that empower forest managers to make informed decisions. These could range from resource allocation and plantation management to wildlife movement and forest fire detection & damage assessment.

In this webinar, you will learn how a seamlessly integrated Drone-GIS solution provides unparalleled insights into forest resource/ inventory, health, security, and operations.


Key takeaways

  • Drones and sensors for forest applications
  • Power of combining Drones with GIS technology
  • Applications of Drones & GIS in Forest Management
  • Best practices to deploy an integrated Drone-GIS solution
