Mapping

Growing Assets is equipped with state-of-the-art GIS (Geographic Information System) computer mapping software, and GPS (Global Positioning System) mapping capabilities. Along with these technologies, our foresters use satellite imaging and aerial photography to create detailed and accurate tract, stand, and feature maps.

Almost every part of our management incorporates this technology. Harvest boundaries are mapped with GPS units and exact acreages are known from the beginning. Planting areas are mapped the same way. This information is then later fed into the computer on the helicopter doing the spraying. Even though the pilot cannot see the planted pine from the air, the computer knows exactly when to open the spray nozzles. After the spraying is complete, we receive a detailed map of the exact area that was sprayed, generated by the GPS unit on the helicopter.

Surveyed corners, old monuments, and old fences can be located with GPS units and found years later even though visible evidence has diminished. Roads can be designed and laid out with GPS and then the files fed into the computers of the contractor doing the work. Simply driving through the woods looking at the GIS map on your laptop can save lots of time not having to constantly read the topography to make sure of where you are. Small things maybe, but time saved is money saved for a client.
