Achieve optimal thinning for every part of the stand
Katam™ TreeMap shows the variations within a forest stand with distribution of tree density and height over all parts of the stand. The information provides a valuable basis for decision-making that enables optimal withdrawal as well as increased volume and yield in the long run.
Measure density and height for each tree with Katam TreeMap
The video shows how easy it is to scan a stand with a drone and get high-precision data directly to the thinning machine

From autonomous drone scans to integration of forest data
Identify tree species
Species and height is registered for each single tree. Also health status can be detected, e.g. dead trees due to spruce bark beetle attack (see picture). Trees that should saved for natural conservation reasons can be identified.
Find previous thinning paths
The system identifies existing network of previous thinning paths. Can be combined with topographic map and soil moisture map.
Fast and easy access
Get feedback on the ongoing thinning work directly in the field. Within a few hours after the drone recordings have been uploaded, KATAM™ TreeMap will deliver an analysis of the entire stand. The report can be directly exported to different types of forestry systems.
Match tree heights with tree diameters
Get volume information for each single tree by matching drone measurements from air with smartphone measurements from ground, using the Katam smartphone app. Provides a complete high-resolution stem inventory.
Comparison before and after thinning
This video shows a stand before and after thinning. The red dots are trees that have been removed.
