Forestry 4.0 - Digitalization in the Forest Industry

Forestry 4.0—Digitalization in the Forest Industry

No matter whether forest ownership is private or public: the optimization of silvicultural processes increasingly requires the integration of ICT solutions. A focal topic that was played at the INTERFORST 2018 not only at the exhibitors' stands but also extensively in the scientific congress, the forums and the special shows.
