Services are being built by means of joining a set of Processing Chains that are formed by the assemblage of a number of individual Building Blocks that corresponds to the elementary pieces of the chain.
The Forest Characterization service provides facts on the status and condition of predefined forest properties: Forest extension, stand delineation, forest infrastructures, main forest types, stand variables (dominant height, stand age, stand density), forest disturbances (clear cuts, fire scars), topography (DEM, slope, aspect).
The Wood Characterization service consists in the modelling and mapping of wood fibre attributes linked to the wood product potential and performance (i.e. pulp yield, density, strength and stiffness of lumber). Data handled by the wood characterisation models are: remote sensing (LIDAR) data, environmental parameters and timber attributes field measurements. Thereafter, wood characteristics are extrapolated to larger forest areas.
The Biomass and CO2 stocking service provides estimations of the living volume of trees in a forest and its CO2 stock. These products are key for the forest biomass industry and carbon accountings.
The Forest Condition Service monitors and measures forest health condition, identifying stressed vegetation, due to drought, plagues or any other hampering cause.
The Ecosystem Vulnerabilities Service provides information on specific ecosystem parameters, namely: watershed extent, hydrologic network, biodiversity indicators, habitat fragmentation, floods and forest fire risks.
Environmental and Economic Accounting. The environmental accounting info refers to a whole territory (massif, region, province, county, municipality, etc.).
