FORSAT at 3D visualization world

GIS in Forestry - Benefits of 3D Visualization and Simulation

3D Simulation and visualization are providing many benefits to the forest industry. These benefits are also extended to the forest and rural landscape and provide ecologists and governance personnel with unique opportunities for research, education and training. The popular magazine 3D visualization world has included FORSAT application among the mist succesful tools for forestry monitoring and assesment. You can dind the specific article here.

FORSAT project at 2014 ForestSAT conference

FORSAT project might ended in the end of October 2014 but the dissemination and exploitation activities continue. FORSAT project results were presented at the ForestSAT2014 "a bridge between forest sciences, remote sensing and geo-spatial applications" that was held in the picturesque town of Riva del Garda (Italy), located close to the city of Trento.

FORSAT project participated at the poster session where innovative applications were presented. More information on ForestSAT2014 can be obtained here.




Results of Nicosia FORSAT workshop.

The FORSAT project official workshop took place in Nicosia, Cyprus on the 3rd of October and attracted local stakeholders from scientific, professional and decision making organizations.

Mr. Aris Anastasiadis and Dr Stratos Stylianidis of GeoImaging Ltd as the local organizers declared the opening of the workshop and presented an overview of the project. Mr. Marinos Portokallides, from the Research Promotion Foundation, introduced the participants to the EUROSTARS funding scheme and presented the different possibilities for local companies to get funded for conducting research and thus enhance their competitive advantage. Mr Portokallides, Project Officer of FORSAT for the entire duration of the project, gave valuable feedback on the future exploitation opportunities of the software.

Elaborating on the current state of the art, Prof. Armin Gruen of 4DX introduced the audience to different methods of tree measurement and 3D modeling by photogrammetry and laser scanning and explained the advantages and certain limitations of the FORSAT technology. Prof. Gruen used various application examples from all over the world and insisted on the need to bring these technologies closer to market and familiarize stakeholders with the new services available from platforms like FORSAT.

After the coffee break Mr. Konstantinos Papasavvas amd Mr. Nikos Siamarias from the Department of Forests of the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment presented the work at the Department of Forests and use of remote sensing and GIS applications in forestry in Cyprus. Finally and according to the agenda, Dr. Devrim Akca of EKINOKS and Dr. Daniela Poli of 4DX presented the FORSAT platform modules to the audience and Mr. Martin Hofer, of GEOVILLE presented the initial results of one of the pilots that used high resolution photos for after fire forest assessment in Cyprus.

During the final presentation and the Q&A session that followed, the participants had the chance to elaborate with the system capabilities and draw useful conclusions on the possibilities of the software for a wide range of services.
