ForestTECHx series welcomed in Canada

Innovatek has successfully expanded its long-running ForestTECH remote sensing and inventory management technology series to include Canada. The popular conference series has long been drawing large audiences of professional foresters in both Australia and New Zealand. Last week the team took the conference to Canada with delegates coming from Canada, Chile, Europe and USA.

The latest forest mapping and harvest planning technologies were the topic of the day at ForestTECHx event that ran in Vancouver last Wednesday. The sold-out event was packed full of information on the pace of change and how satellite, LiDAR and photogrammetric imagery is changing how we measure and manage our forests.

In addition, how automated measuring and monitoring systems in harvesters have been proven to lift log grades and outturn was a key theme being covered at the event. The conference was organised by long-time tech transfer specialists, Innovatek Ltd from New Zealand in partnership with Canada’s Logging & Sawmilling Journal.

Further details from the event will be covered in future issues of Friday Offcuts and on the monthly ForestTECH newsletter,
