Planning Maps & Applications

How often are certain areas being selected for harvesting? Using GIS analysis tools in ArcGIS Online, maximize harvest sites in order to ensure efficient wood procurement and find potential new locations!

Real-time Analysis and Dashboards

Esri’s Dashboards are another valuable tool through your ArcGIS Online account. Dashboards can be configured for anyone, and are a quick and easy way to see your desired information in a real-time, easy to read format.

Procurement and Transportation App

Using ArcGIS Online (AGO), we can build on top of the Esri platform to design a web map that…

  • Helps foresters identify where the most likely harvest locations are located.
  • View what land is public vs. private.
  • Integrate desired parcel data so you know exactly who the land owners are.
  • Calculate transportation costs to the closest mill, which can translate to even further savings!
