GPS Data Capture
The first rule of managing anything is knowing what it is and where it is. Even for small projects, you have to know where the trees. Things become tricky if either of these data points is missing. This is where GPS data capture is invaluable.
Greenwood Consulting uses GPS data capture to create a map of the elements that you are mapping. These maps can then be used with a vast amount of other spatial data such as footpaths, park benches, fire hydrants, property boundaries to create a comprehensive, stacked overview of the area. We have captured data for more than 1.5 million trees and continue to on large and small scale data capture projects.
Quality assurance should be built into just about everything that we do commercially and should be regarded as an integral and critical part of tree data capture. Greenwood Consulting offers this as an optional extra.
