  1. Land Information System Green Belt Forestry LIS

  2. Company Profile • Ireland’s largest private forestry company • Established 1982 • 18 Foresters • 6 Administrative Staff • 1 GIS technician • Encompasses all aspects relating to forestry management. • Imperative Energy • Renewable Energy Solutions via Biomass • Commercial & Industrial • Expansion into Panama • 2003 • Approx. 1000 ha of Teak plantations

  3. Current Core Activities • Afforestation (70% Turnover) • 40% Market Share • 5 year average 3000 ha/pa – 600 mapped applications per annum • Forest Road Construction (10% Turnover) • 25 – 30 km per annum – 100 mapped applications per annum • Timber Harvesting (15% Turnover) • 50,000 tons per annum • Current optimisation of LIS is in Afforestation applications & procedures.

  4. Afforestation Form 1 • Application • For Pre-Planting Approval • completed by the applicant and Registered Forester • contains a map drawn on an original OSI 6” map, accuracy important. • Current Forest Service proposal iNet. • Adequate facility for Green Belt Form 1 application

  5. Afforestation Form 1 Historical • Labour intensive & paper intensive • Significant Cost & wastage • One Application per Map • Postal System no electronic transfer of data • Large space required for storage of paper data • Multiple requests for paper maps, multiple admin. staff, time lost.

  6. Afforestation Form 1 Post LIS • Full set of 6” data available on LIS allowing for easy & immediate access to original 6” maps • No storing or ordering of paper maps • Cost effective with no waste • Multiple Applications per Map • Electronic transfer of data available • Central location for all mapping requirements, single point of contact

  7. Afforestation Form 2 • Application for Grant payment • Average monetary size – €35,000 per application. • Payment based on map submitted. • Template for payment of premium to Land owner – average €500 p/ha per annum, over a 20 year period. • Accuracy absolutely essential

  8. Afforestation Form 2 Historical • Ordering original 6” paper map….time lost. • Site mapped by hand …. Accuracy issue • Area calculated by grid square …. Accuracy issue • Presentation …. Monotonous • Time per application, 2 per day • Significant annual surveyor costs. • Significant storage required due to paper copies on all files. • 4 Staff members 100% time allocation • Inspection Rates – Speed of payment

  9. Afforestation Form 2 Post LIS • Maps readily available online • Site mapped using ArcGIS 9.3 … accuracy issue resolved • Area calculated by LIS … accuracy resolved • Presentation … variable, professional, integratable • Time per application, 6 per day, three fold increase. • Surveyor costs eliminated …. Due to GPS element within the LIS. • LIS provides a safe and accessible location for all data and maps relating to any site without having to hold any paper copies. • 2 Staff members 50% time allocation • Reduced Inspection rates – Funds available quicker

  15. Post Planting use of LIS • Mobile Mapper – Magellan CX • User Friendly • Improves Accuracy • In house surveying …. Significant cost savings

  16. Post Planting use of LIS • ESB Compensation Package • Form 3 • Reconstitution Mapping • Road Applications • Forest Inventory – key to expansion

  17. Summary of Benefits • Time Saving ….. € • Maps – Storage, instant access • Less error more working capital …..€ • Reduced staffing requirement …..€ • Flexible system • Accurate Inventory & associated expansion for Green Belt …..€
