Identify Spruce Beetle Infestations Earlier Using Satellite Data Analytics
Satellite data analytics can provide powerful insight for forest owners and managers to inform forestry decision-making.
- Detect spruce beetle faster and more accurately than any other aerial surveys
- Harvest affected trees up to one year earlier, before they lose their value
- Observe and monitor entire forests on a monthly basis
- Faster and more accurate intelligence for forest management
