An important part of practical training revolves around field map technology for forest inventory and monitoring, a technology that combines hardware and software for effective computer-aided field data collection and processing. The technology combines flexible real-time GIS software and electronic equipment for mapping and dendrometric measurements and is highly used worldwide since methods are easy, secure data loss, collect more information and store data in industry-standard data format. Not least, this technologies allow many processing functions and are more accurate than manual operations.
