The Future of Forestry

Lim Geomatics is on the forefront of how geospatial and remote-sensing technologies can be harnessed to optimize the safety, efficiency and productivity of forest operations.


The world’s forests serve so many vital functions. These complex ecosystems are home to watersheds and critical habitats for diverse flora and fauna. They provide endless recreation opportunities and help mitigate climate change. Forests are also the source of valuable economic commodities.

Foresters are responsible for managing the right balance between all of these competing demands. Harvesting, conservation and management of such a dynamic resource requires accurate and detailed information.

Lim Geomatics is playing a pivotal role in how geospatial technology is transforming the forestry industry. We regularly evaluate and update our software to ensure it reflects the latest innovations in geomatics and information technologies. We also work side-by-side with clients to solve problems and issues that arise from the unique circumstances of each forest and harvest.
