BUSHNET

Modern communication is key to every business’s success. Often forestry and agricultural operations are carried out in remote rural locations. Poor cellular coverage in many rural areas globally means that achieving a full range of communication services is extremely difficult if not impossible in remote areas.

Margules Groome is at the forefront of developing innovative mobile communication solution to the forestry industry. In the next couple of months, Margules Groome, with its partner, Wireless Nation, will release a new cost effective satellite internet solution for mobile forestry operations such as silvicultural and harvesting sites.

REMOTE SENSING – LiDAR

LiDAR (Light Detection and Range) technology has been in use since the early 1950’s, but its commercial potential in forestry is only starting to be realised. Margules Groome staff have led the way in the use of LiDAR in New Zealand and Australian forestry industries. Although LiDAR is often seen as an expensive technology, the benefits can well outweigh its costs.

Margules Groome can guide your company through the steps required to obtain and utilise LiDAR from:

  • developing a LiDAR business case
  • managing the LiDAR data acquisition process
  • processing the LiDAR data
  • utilising LiDAR products for terrain analysis and engineering design
  • yield analysis.

Margules Groome has the experience to help you utilise LiDAR technology to reduce operational cost and maximise the return from your business.

REMOTE SENSING – AERIAL AND SATELLITE IMAGERY

Remotely sensed imagery is becoming an increasingly critical information source for the sustainable management of forest and agricultural resources.

There has been enormous recent growth in the availability of imagery and an accompanying reduction in cost. The data can be used to help answer multi-dimensional questions regarding the spatial distribution and condition of the resources, the changes to these resources spatially and over time, and the impacts of changing natural processes and human activities.

Converting the data into meaningful information for resource management, requires an understanding of the data, the methods and tools to use and their limitations. Margules Groome staff have a wealth of experience in acquiring, processing and interpreting aerial and satellite imagery combined with a sound understanding of the needs of end-users. We can assist your company in:

  • sourcing suitable imagery
  • preparing the imagery for use (georeferencing, orthorectifying, mosaicing)
  • producing forest and agricultural cover-type maps
  • mapping changes resulting from harvesting operations and natural disturbances
