Data some countries compile on current and potential wood supply from grower surveys highlights broad trends but often omits spatial boundaries and species information; Indufor has advanced methods to extract plantation boundaries automatically, at scale

Sample article from our R&D/Patents

June 17, 2022 (press release) –

​​​​​​Understanding ‘wood basket’s’ and their current and potential future wood supply often underpin forest investment strategies. In some countries, public information on plantation areas, species and tending regimes are compiled from grower surveys. The granularity of such data is sufficient to highlight broad regional trends, but for reasons of confidentiality can omit spatial boundaries, species and regime information. Such information quickly dates, especially in locations where plantation rotations are short, where harvest levels are high, or unexpected fire losses occur.

Our team at Indufor Asia Pacific describes the applications in their article.
