In the forest, a wide range of interests meet, such as forestry, outdoor life, tourism and reindeer husbandry. All have different purposes and goals but must coexist with others because the respective activities affect the others. One of the success factors for functioning and parallel operations is the opportunity to take part in each other’s […]
Dianthus and Södra take the next step for automatic Stand Delineation and forest Parameter Estimation
Dianthus, together with Södra Skogsägarna, has introduced a new gear to lift Dianthus’ service for fully automatic stand delineation and forest parameter estimation to meet modern forestry’s requirements for reliability, resolution and cost-effectiveness. “The biggest news is that we are creating a genuine service that Södra Skogsägarna’s systems can call,” says Fredrik Walter, CEO and
Just in time for Christmas 2021, Stora Enso Skog was crowned with a complete analysis of all profitable road projects within their holdings over the next 20 years. The analysis is a perfect basis for planning at a strategic level, budgeting and forecasting and a bridge to operational road design in eg. Dianthus Road Calculus.
Since the beginning of September, Johan Bergström has been part of Dianthus’ team. “It’s incredible that we’ve got Johan on board our boat. We see that a lot is happening in the forest industry right now, where the need for digitalization and for our solutions is increasing significantly. It’s time to put in a new
For SCA Forest we have developed Dianthus Forwarding Optimization. The software optimizes main forwarding roads with respect to timber volumes, ground slope, soil moisture, hinder, and passages. SCA will be using the tool for cost calculations and for implementing more gentle forwarding.
There is now an interesting article about SCA’s and Dianthus’ forwarding optimization in the latest issue of Skogforsk’s journal Vision. With the program and algorithms developed by Dianthus and SCA, inspired by Skogforsk Bestway, SCA’s employees automatically produce base path suggestions in the map. The fact that SCA has chosen to work with automated base
For Sveaskog we have developed a web-based service for rapidly producing orthophotos from drone aerial images. The production does not require overlap between images, making it possible to map vast areas at short time. The service is really useful in case of storm damage inventory or forest fire inventory.
We are launching the unique global web service rapiddronemap.se for drones in the fight against the bark beetle. The service quickly and efficiently creates continuous photos of the forest, making it easier for individual landowners to manually identify damage attacks. We have chosen to offer the service for free to individual private forest owners.
A lot of money can be saved by building and restoring forest roads in a structured way. Our developed tool effectively ranks the most profitable roads for building and restoration. The employees responsible for road building and restoration are guided within the user friendly interface, making their analysis work really easy. The result from the
We have mapped all forest land for Sveaskog using Lidar from the Swedish national elevation model. At forest stand level we have mapped forest stem volume, stem height, diameter, basal area and site index. Using the mapping from Dianthus and accompanying software tools, the quality of their forest database has been improved at a fraction
