Bye Bye D-tape

The new way of measuring forests has been started with an Irish forestry analytics company. Treemetrics are now combining Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) and Aerial Laser Scanning (ALS). Therefore ground truthing is taken to another more accurate level. Enda Keane, Treemetrics CEO says: “We can accurately show foresters the actual log products present, in each tree, and how they can change, depending on specification and quality. This is a revolutionary development, and provides scientifically objective, independent and verifiable information, to the modern forestry industry, whilst displacing the old 19th century methods.” The rumour is that here in British Columbia some trials have started in the use of this technology. I believe that with this new technology the forest industry is going to grow and once again become an important natural renewable resource in BC. With the current state of the forest, i.e. loss of timber due to pests, we can no longer afford any waste in our timber supply.

Zipdecode by Ben Fry built with Processing

I came across this interesting project which is about visualizing data. I have been very interested in the way we can visualize data and I found this project like windmap to be a lot of fun as well. This project was built with Processing.
