Cocreation cruise event on Mapping forest information 15.2.

Unite cruise: Mapping forest information: methods and applications

Mapping is something that combines all Unite research work. It combines method development for pointcloud analysis, modelling forest characteristics based on point cloud data, data provision for decision making for forest owners and forest goers and also means to communicate data to users.

UNITE Online cruise “Mapping Forest Information” presents results of the UNITE flagship so far regarding mapping and innovating future work on the the theme. This cruise covers all these different aspects of mapping. The participants are asked to join in innovating new types of maps to benefit forestry and forest goers, as well as new properties that would benefit forest data users.

The language of the cruise in English, and it is aimed at end users interested in cocreation and utilisation of Unite research. As a captain and first mate of this cruise serve professor Annika Kangas and as her first mate professor Matti Maltamo.

You are welcome to join us! Please register here to receive a Teams link to the event.
