What is IT4forest?
Our Methods & Key Technologies & Applications
Forest Virtual Tours
Virtual tours open opportunities to bring the forest to your screen. The virtual tours hosted on accessible platforms enabling worldwide access. This approach facilitates learning about sustainable forest management, considering biodiversity and economic value and encourages students to master technology while producing the tours.
RESEARCH: rapid detection and prediction of storm damage in managed forest stands
RESEARCH TOPIC: urban green
The project researches and promotes sustainable urban development from a people-centred perspective in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Today it’s a thriving challenge in sustainable urban planning to actively maintain and develop green infrastructure, especially in fast growing cities like Phnom Penh.
TEACHING IT: supporting eco-systems
Since digital technologies are a natural part of (young) people’s lives, we want to introduce students to the reflected and professional use of new media and forms of communication for education and science. Digitalisation is both an opportunity and a challenge for teaching and studying forest related and environmental sciences.
