The experience of Tracasa in the study of forest resources is focused on the following areas:
Management and Administration of Designated Forests: Creation of a data model applicable to a geo-database capable of containing basic information for the management of forest designations.
Forest Fires: A fuel model map is generated at regional level by means of geo-processes and inventories.
Assessment of forest waste for energy production: GIS analysis to quantify and locate the production of energy by means of the combustion of forest waste.
Model to quantify biomass at regional level: The carbon fixing corresponding to tree-covered masses is calculated based on remote sensing and data from the national inventory.
Forest mass parameters with LiDAR: High resolution forest parameters are obtained from LiDAR data and the forest inventory.
Databases: SQL Server, MySQL, MS Access.
GIS-remote sensing: ArcGis, ERDAS, ENVI, Quantum, GeoMap (own sw)
Programming: C#, Python, VB. LiDAR: Terrascan, Fusion, R
