Forestmap is an e-commerce platform that allows users to make online forest inventories of a specific area. Forest monitoring is essential to ensure conservation and sustainable wood supply. Current forest inventories, mainly based on field data only, are expensive, time consuming and rarely updated. Forest managers and bioeconomic industries cannot make accurate, cost effective and rapid inventories. Forestmap fills this gap, allowing users to make near-real time forest inventories thanks to LiDAR, Copernicus (Sentinel-1 & Sentinel-2) and upcoming missions datasets, for example ESA Biomass. Through Big Data and without requiring additional field campaigns, forest management and wood supply will be easier and cheaper than ever.

Customer benefits

Forest owners and forest managers can make sustainable management plans (nowadays many forests are not monitored because of the price). Forest industries will increase their knowledge about the availability of wood supply in near real time, at an affordable price.
