Technology has become the backbone of the forestry and
agricultural industries. The demands of being both economically efficient and having
effective solutions is increasing. Today, technologies allow agribusinesses and
agencies of all sizes to more efficiently manage forests and farmland. Avenza Maps
has developed a cost-effective platform that enables you to align your mapping and
field data collection needs with your existing enterprise business needs.
The flexibility of our mobile app allows you to import custom maps created by your team. Multiple maps of an area can be grouped as a collection for seamless browsing. When away from network coverage, maps can be used completely offline, only relying on GPS to precisely locate yourself and to collect points of data in the field. Create custom field collection schemas to take inventory of forested areas, crops, and other important points of interest. The app allows you to export data and upload it to your own network or a cloud storage solution.
On the farm or in the forest, productivity remains a high priority. The Avenza Maps platform provides your team with a more organized and managed way to use maps on the ground and have data immediately available to enable decision making.
“Students in the Forestry program at SEG are using Avenza Maps Pro in the field for every course. During the student’s final, month-long project, the app is integral to all their data collection, field verification of initial plans and creation of accurate map products.
“Because of the nature of our job, the technology behind this app is crucial to what we do since the situation can change quickly and suddenly. With the map packets we utilized before discovering Avenza’s PDF Maps app, we were never able to update them after 11:00 PM the night prior – so much can change overnight when it comes to a wildfire or a hurricane. Now that we have the PDF Maps app, we can update our maps throughout the day to keep everyone fully informed of the situation.”
“Our main objective is to practice good silviculture (the art and science of forestry)."
“Not too long ago, it was common to carry a briefcase filled with maps as large as 3 ft. x 2ft. that marked heli spots, division breaks, and numerous other landmarks. Although valuable, paper maps were very cumbersome, and sometimes so large that the ends could touch wall to wall in a tiny cockpit. When crews started to use digital maps on their iPads, it was definitely a welcome move for many. We used to get our first look of the fire during the morning briefing when the paper maps were handed out, but now both air and ground personnel come to the briefing more prepared knowing what they’re up against.”
