ForestMap – The next generation of forest maps – adapting a Nordic success story across the globe
The overall objective of ForestMap is to advance the societal values of forest use by developing and evaluating a new methodology to produce forest maps across the globe. The forest maps will be produced using crowd sourced data from smartphones and remote sensing data from space- and airborne systems.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms will be developed in order to produce tailor-made forest maps to stakeholder’s needs and corresponding their willingness to pay. The societal value of the forest maps used in existing and new business models will also be explored.
