ForestTECH 2018 – Rotorua

The ForestTECH series has been run annually since 2007. It is now firmly established as the annual technology event for forest resource managers, remote sensing and GIS specialists and inventory foresters from throughout Australia and New Zealand. In 2017, a record number of 250 delegates attended the series.  New systems to manage and process large data sets, results from recent in-forest trials and outcomes of the AU$1.8 million FWPA remote sensing project along with disruptive technologies such as automation, robotics and virtual reality were for the first time outlined.  In 2018, tech updates and the integration of research results operationally by local forestry companies will be the focus.
