Urban Forest GIS Management

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) has profoundly changed the way municipal forests are being managed. Beyond forestry management, GIS can serve in assist in other environmental management concerns, including:

  • oil, gas and minerals management
  • wildlife management
  • infrastructure design, and planning
  • general property management

Our forestry GIS capabilities provide municipalities with previously unseen insights into the nature of their land, allowing us to visualize their management in relation to all its aspects, helping managers understand the full nature and interdependence of the ecosystem’s characteristics.

Tabular data collected in the field can be transformed into intuitive graphics representing localized points across the property. These graphics can make it easier for the professional forester or landowner to visually identify a host of situations making it easier for forest management planning, timber harvesting or implementing wildlife management activities.

Forestry GIS provides planning advantages that have elevated the efficiencies of natural resource and forest management tremendously over the last decade. Forestry GIS allows forest managers to better, and more wholly, understand the dynamic and complex nature of the land and forest.

The FORECON Inc. Geographic Information Systems Department provides mapping and database management services to aid our clients in various forms of analysis. Our GIS department is well equipped with the technology and knowledge to help forest owners and a variety of other clients in their decision making processes, helping to improve the knowledge and management of their assets.
