GIS IN LITHUANIAN FOREST INVENTORY – 20 YEARS' EXPERIENCE




Abstract:
It has been almost 20 Years since the start of using GIS based stand-wise Forest inventory and management in Lithuania. The first cycle of the standwise forest inventory by using GIS was finished in 2006. Lithuanian Institute for Forest Management Planning introduced technologically new solution in 1999 in development of forest inventory by presenting the geographic information system (GIS). It started to work with PC/ArcInfo for data collection and storage and as well for cartographic works analysis. Later on, GIS system has evolved into a big and multifunctional digital information system, based on the ArcGIS, ArcSDE platforms and MS SQL Server. Technology was based on the integration of all cartographical material by using GIS and on-screen vectorization of orthophoto maps. That has affected the foresters to change their approach to the benefits of using GIS technology in forest resources processing.
