Description: In the Brazilian Amazon, operators are required by law to follow sustainable forest management plans (SFMPs) that have been approved by the appropriate governmental institutions. As part of SFMPs, operators must conduct a 100% forest inventory of the area to be logged in a given year; they must also have annual operational plans that specify the activities to be carried out and indicate the trees to be logged, with their geographic position, scientific name, diameter at breast height, height, and wood volume. Harvesting is permitted only after state and federal agencies have evaluated and approved the annual operating plan. The forest inventories carried out to meet these legal requirements produce an enormous quantity of data, the analysis of which requires significant data-processing capacity. Most operators use electronic spreadsheets, making the process slow and cumbersome and not conducive to good forest management planning. Brazil’s forest sector needs—and demands—software that speeds up and improves the forest planning process by aiding the selection of harvest trees based on clear criteria, providing better control over timber production, and enabling sustainable forest management.
