Forestry and Conservation
Forestry is a broad field that includes the creation, conservation, and management of forests in ways that are beneficial both to humans and the environment.
Hexagon Geospatial technology can help users see how forest data has changed over time, identify characteristics of the soil, and more. Using this information, conservationists can manage current forest presence and find the best course of action in planting new trees.
IMAGINE Photogrammetry - By automating precision measurement and including flexible operations such as terrain editing and feature extraction, IMAGINE Photogrammetry increases productivity while ensuring high accuracy.
ERDAS APOLLO - A comprehensive data management, analysis, and delivery system. Enables organizations to organize and deliver massive volumes of data, and consistently delivers geospatial data faster and with less hardware than competing server-based products.
