The work package on big data databases and applications (WP3) aims at exploiting the full potential of data sources available from work packages Trafficability and Efficient silviculture, as well as the pre-project knowledge base, including best practices.

The objectives for the work are:

  • To escribe potentials in using, refining and linking existing and new Big Data sources in forestry applications, and
    evaluate the identified sources of data through a SWOT analysis.
  • Based on these data, create decision-support models for efficient, sustainable and value-creating forestry and
    forest operations.
  • To demonstrate the potential in keeping and refining information throughout subsequent operations in the forestry
