Reliable, high resolution forest inventory solutions
designed to be available in the cloud and accessible via the web along with an applications tools suite.
UBC ALEX FRASER
The UBC Alex Fraser Research Forest, Knife Creek Block is a 3,500 ha area south west of Williams Lake, BC dominated by irregular stands of Interior Douglas-fir.
In 2013, Tesera developed a high resolution forest inventory (20m x 20m gridcells, user defined microstands 0.1-3 hectares) using ground plots, LiDAR, colour infrared, and ancillary data and produced initial and post-treatment response growth & yield curves and performed timber/habitat supply modeling.
Our HRIS Knife Creek results are tantalizing…I’m really excited that we are getting to the point where a bunch of folks can debate the merits of managing our forests in different ways, and then quickly analyze the results and implications. Great stuff.

HIGH RESOLUTION FOREST INVENTORY IN BRAZIL
September 17, 2018
Visiona Tecnologia Espacial, in São José dos Campos, will join Tesera Systems, a Canadian forestry company, in the development of technology that will use satellite images to monitor trees.
The three projects were selected in a call for proposals launched by FAPESP in conjunction with the National Research Council Canada (NRC). The approved projects will be funded by FAPESP and the Canadian International Innovation Program (CIIP).
“We will add Tesera’s expertise in forestry inventory to that of Visiona. The intellectual property of the technologies to be developed will be shared, “said Cleber Gonzales de Oliveira, a researcher responsible for the project.
