Computer Applications in Sustainable Forest Management Including Perspectives on Collaboration and Integration by Guofan Shao and Keith M. Reynolds pdf free download. Earth, and the often far-reaching impacts of its human inhabitants, can now be viewed and represented with digital information ranging from satellite imagery to geospatial databases. Increasingly, scientists, policymakers, and the general public have come to appreciate the need to better understand our planet and how we are affecting it. Among the array of impacts that have attracted global attention, those to forests figure prominently.

Impacts to forest ecosystems are of special concern because, while forests provide goods and services essential to the well-being of human societies, and indeed to the proper functioning of global systems, they are disappearing faster today than ever before. At the same time as we have been witness to unprecedented changes to forest ecosystems, there has also been a rapid evolution in information management and information technologies, and it has been proceeding at an almost breath-taking pace. Many of these digital technologies have become integral to modern forestry operations in many countries.

Efficiencies have been achieved in such areas as pre-harvest quality assessment, production planning, resource assessment, systems analysis, management, field operations, environmental impact, and day-to-day decision-making. In short, forestry technologies have become, and are continuing to become, increasingly digital. Recognizing the degree to which many core forestry operations had indeed become increasingly digital in the above sense, the Society of American Foresters (SAF) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences jointly sponsored the 1st International Workshop on digital forestry, which was held in Beijing between June 13 and 19, 2004.

The workshop provided a venue in which scientists, representing a broad array of digital disciplines in forestry, could discuss the convergent development of digital forestry as a new integrative discipline, grounded in the state-of-the-art applications of digital disciplines in forestry, including forest inventory, remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), forest modeling, biometrics, and decision science. Overall, 30 participants from China, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Canada attended the workshop. The participants in the 1st International Workshop on digital forestry have made a concerted effort to summarize the state-of-the-art of computer applications in major disciplines, and offer insights on how they relate to each other with a view toward their collaborative application.
