FOREST MANAGEMENT

FOREST MANAGEMENT

GRUPO TECOPY covers a wide range of issues related to sustainable forest management and forest certification through the application of remote sensing techniques and the development of information systems with a geographical basis.

Mapping to support inventory, forest health studies, water stress, erosion, biomass and fuel characterization and fire prevention and monitoring are areas in which TECOPY GROUP has developed its own methodologies and tools.

Using experience gained handling MODIS images as a basis, GRUPO TECOPY has developed methodologies to predict areas which are susceptible to the risk of fire at the regional level.

These predictions, obtained daily, are used to carry out the planning and strategic distribution of resources and manpower, which provide a valuable tool to anticipate potential emergency management situations.
