Rezatec Extends its Global Reach into Canada With its Geospatial Data Analytics for the Forestry Sector


Rezatec's satellite data service provides cost effective forest attribute mapping for large areas in NE British Colombia to support caribou habitat restoration efforts

Vancouver, Canada, 6th March 2018 – Rezatec, the leading provider of geospatial data analytics to the Forestry sector, today announced that it is to provide its forestry attribute data products to the BC Oil and Gas Research and Innovation Society (BC OGRIS), the not-for-profit society enabling research to inform environmental matters related to oil and gas exploration and development in British Columbia.

In the area of interest, there is an extensive history of anthropogenic disturbance, particularly from oil & gas and forestry activities. Knowledge of the state of vegetation regrowth on features such as seismic lines, abandoned pipeline corridors, roads and well pads is required to prioritise restoration treatments where the rate of regeneration is currently insufficient.

Working closely with local partner Forsite, a leading provider of forest management services to government and industry in Canada, Rezatec will map the estimated tree height and density of canopy cover across a vast study area of over 80,000 km2. The resulting map will cover all anthropogenic features of interest and also the surrounding forest to provide a comparative reference of regeneration status. Existing methods to estimate regrowth in this area have provided only a coarse classification of regeneration status; the Rezatec approach will provide greater detail while also establishing a repeatable method that can be used to refresh the inventory in future years.

Rezatec algorithms process optical and radar satellite data with ground-based sensor data to deliver predictive and dynamic monitoring analysis to its customers. Access to data is provided via an annual subscription model and Rezatec's automated and scalable products deliver substantial payback for customers across areas of interest that range in size from a square mile to millions of acres.

BC OGRIS spokesperson Brian Thomson said, “We are keen to utilize the latest in satellite derived intelligence to understand the state of vegetation recovery on disturbed sites in northern BC. This technology has the potential to focus restoration efforts and ensure investments achieve maximum benefit to caribou habitat."

Cameron Brown, Strategic Planning Forester & Team Leader at Forsite commented: “Forsite is really excited about the innovative capabilities that satellite data can now provide to the forestry sector and with Rezatec as our partner, we can enable our clients to be more productive, more efficient and more profitable”.

“Rezatec is now the world's number one provider of geospatial data analytics to the forestry sector and our expansion into Canada continues to support our growth and industry proven tools”, stated Tim Vallings, Vice President of Global Resources, at Rezatec.

In the forestry sector, Rezatec also provides geospatial data services for species identification mapping, mensuration and forest inventory management, forest health monitoring and wind blow mapping. Rezatec users also include major utilities, agribusinesses, large forestry groups, consulting partners and governments worldwide.
