INTERFORST 2014 presents IT solutions for the forest


Digital and networked worlds are fundamental to improving performance and efficiency in the economy. In this area, forestry still offers great potential. INTERFORST 2014 will deal with this topic at its special show "eForest - IT Diversity in the Forest". Here, the whole digital logistics chain is on display, from the app for the private forest owner up to the state-of-the-art photo-optical measurement procedure.

The smartphone has almost become indispensable today, particularly the e-mail and web functions. But what is the situation with respect to special apps for forestry? In the last few years, many IT developers have dedicated themselves to this special area. In the meantime there are apps allowing forest visitors to determine the flora and fauna or hunters to mark their raised hides on a digital map. There are apps for measuring and documenting timber stacks. Apps help rescue teams give first aid to casualties and facilitate the battle against forest fires. The smartphone may even become a measuring instrument for the forest enterprise and foresters can compile their timber lists directly by means of this handy device.

Digital data recording avoids the effort involved in entering data on a computer. This offers great potential for savings, and the risk of transmission errors is minimized. More and more well-known work tools and machines are equipped with sensors which record data, and IT interfaces by means of which this data can be read out. To ensure smooth communication between different systems, a uniform data standard such as ELDAT, for example, must be used.

That is exactly the topic to which IT developers have attached great importance in the last few years. "As a result of the widespread use of mobile end devices, the number of mobile forestry applications continues to rise. The users of our forest logistics software expect of us that they can transmit the data recorded using their mobile devices to the software without difficulty. This will only be possible through a uniform data standard even in future", states Ursula Fendel, Marketing and Consulting Manager of WASP-Logistik.

Organized by the Board of Trustees for Forestry Work and Technology (KWF), the eForest special show is located in hall B6, forming a marketplace where apps from all areas of forestry are displayed. These apps can be tested. Furthermore, a great number of photo-optical measurement procedures are presented there. The developers of the respective hard- and software are available for a professional exchange.
