Imagine you need to map every tree in 440,000 hectares of land in remote areas of Liberia. A few years ago you would think this was impossible. In the 21st century, technology is rapidly advancing to improve sustainable forest management.
Using a cloud-based portal centrally maintained by the department of forestry, each tree and hectare in Liberia is identified using unique barcodes, from which 3 to 5 fully grown trees are selected for logging.
Natural Resources Development S.A. (NRD), a Lichtenstein based company specializes in sustainable forest management and is the chosen body in the EU that works with Liberia to curb illegal logging in the country. Through a strategic partnership with Vanenburg software – a WaveMaker certified premier EU partner headquartered in the Netherlands, they are looking to digitize all their sustainable forest management activities. NRD needed a mobile solution for their field officers in the remote parts of Liberia to tag each tree and support offline capability to later sync with a cloud-based portal. The system would also provide confirmation on the logging permits of the governing body to ensure chain of custody and transparency in the process.
