GIS Mapping

Timber stand mapping is integral to forestry work.  PFC utilizes Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping techniques to build forest stand maps for management and appraisal projects. GIS mapping capabilities allows us to create custom made maps for any given project or property. A GIS map is essentially a composite of various mapping layers.  These include road and stream locations, topographic features and public land survey records.  The timber stand layer is site specific and delineated by our foresters based on both aerial photography and on-ground inspection.  All of these layers can be shown over orthophotographic imagery which builds a very detailed picture of any given property.
