Accuracy and cost efficiency of LiDAR has been proven in several conditions: in natural forest and plantations; from boreal taiga to tropical regions. LiDAR is the standard inventory format in Finland, the well-known country for its developed forest sector. The one difficulty remained is finding out the ways to take advantage of the technology.
Arbonaut team of foresters, mathematicians and programmers has developed a unique tool suite —ArboLiDAR— to fulfill own inventory production needs, following state of art processes to provide high quality inventories for diverse private and public customers in Europe, Asia, South and North America and Africa for more than 10 million hectares of inventoried forest.
Lately, ArboLiDAR has been successfully used to calculate inventories based on other data sources such as satellite imagery for carbon inventories, biomass procurement planning or investment pre-feasibility studies.
In addition to ArboLiDAR, the customers benefit from our broad experience in capacity building related to employee training that allows taking advantages from the data and tools usage.
