Lumber Management: "Timber Cruising"

When your foresters are out timber cruising, it is essential the data being collected about your stands are received quickly by forest management. Getac solutions are backed with powerful Intel® processors and Android OS systems to ensure that data reaches its destination.

Plot location direction and connection

While timber cruising methods can differ slightly, the overall purpose is the same, and getting the data collected from the plot location to those who oversee the management plans is critical. Getac solutions offer several configurable tablets and laptops to make sending cruise statistics quick and easy. Powerful and fast WiFi, Bluetooth, 4G LTE all configured to your needs ship timber volumes back to the office even from remote locations. Getac solutions optional dedicated GPS enables your crew to mark specific areas which have shown evidence of bugs, disease, or fire. Tracking which plots you have cruised and additional forest blocks that need to be surveyed can also be noted with the GPS, as can stand inventory, and the control of streamside management zones (SMZ).

Timber cruising made easy

Unfortunately, not all days can be sunny, but Getac solutions are built to work with you in extreme weather. Our revolutionary LumiBond® 2.0 touchscreen is designed to respond to a finger, glove, pen, or stylus, and functions even in the rain. An optional digitizer mode captures writing, which can be helpful when noting forest inventory on your maps. With screen brightness up to 1000 NITS, those same screens are easily readable in direct sunlight. Our tablets and laptops are manufactured to handle extreme conditions and have been independently certified up to MIL-STD-810H and IP67. Getac solutions are drop, moisture, dust, and vibration resistant and work in temperatures from -20°F to 145°F.

Ergonomic and portable data collectors

Timber cruising often requires two hands, which is why Getac solutions offer a variety of straps, cradles, handles, etc. to allow you to work with your hands and always have your laptop or tablet within reach. Choose between several lightweight and compact Getac solutions to meet the needs of your crew.

Barcode Reader

Barcode scanners are needed to identify assets and access information. Getac’s rugged devices offer 1D and 2D barcode reader options to help with this.
