Avenza Maps Pro for Forestry

How Can Avenza Maps Help You?

With increasing demands for economic yet effective solutions, technology has now become the backbone of the forestry and agricultural industries. Today, these allow agribusinesses and agencies of all sizes to more efficiently manage forests and farmland. Avenza Maps has developed a cost-effective platform that enables you to align your mapping and field data collection needs with your existing enterprise business needs

The flexibility of our mobile app allows you to import custom maps created by your team, group them as a collection for seamless browsing, and use them fully offline when away from network coverage. You can also create custom field collection schemas to take inventory of forested areas, crops, and other relevant points of interest along a route. The app allows you to export that data and upload it to your own network or a cloud storage solution.

Avenza Maps Pro lets you rely exclusively on GPS to precisely locate yourself and to collect points of data in the field.

On the farm or in the forest, productivity remains a high priority. The Avenza Maps platform provides your team with a more organized and well-managed way to use maps on the ground and have data immediately available to enable decision-making.

Forest fire

Wildland Fire’s Air Tactical Team

“Not too long ago, it was common to carry a briefcase filled with maps as large as 3 ft. x 2ft. that marked heli spots, division breaks, and numerous other landmarks. Although valuable, paper maps were very cumbersome, and sometimes so large that the ends could touch wall to wall in a tiny cockpit. When crews started to use digital maps on their iPads, it was definitely a welcome move for many. We used to get our first look of the fire during the morning briefing when the paper maps were handed out, but now both air and ground personnel come to the briefing more prepared knowing what they’re up against.”
