New ESRI Book Details Evolving Use of GIS in Forestry Industry

Redlands, CaliforniaJanuary 11, 2010— Mapping Forestry from ESRI Press provides a unique view into some of the many ways geographic information system (GIS) technology is being used throughout the world to support better forestry and land management decisions. The book provides firsthand reports from forestry professionals on their use of GIS to manage commercial operations and promote sustainable stewardship. Presented are approaches for determining the best route for building roads through forest lands, whether logging in a particular area is commercially viable, which fire-damaged areas of forest should be restored first, and more.

Peter Eredics, editor of Mapping Forestry and ESRI’s manager for forestry solutions, comments, “From developing countries to the developed world, forestry professionals rely on GIS to understand the timber resource, make strategic plans, manage resources sustainably, reduce costs, create efficiencies, and increase profitability.”

Forestry managers today must deal with unprecedented challenges posed by increasingly complex regulatory requirements and evolving social expectations. As a result, the business of sustainable forestry is currently undergoing transformation in an era of dramatic economic change and intensifying global competition. Mapping Forestry details how GIS software is helping foresters manage, view, and model data so they can meet environmental and commercial demands.
