Forest and Photonics webinar December 1st  2020

Forest and Photonics webinar

The theme of the Forest and Photonics 2020 event, organised fully online this year, is biotic forest damages.The half day webinar will be held on December 1st 2020 at 14:00 (Finnish time) and it will start a series of events leading to the Forest and Photonics 2021 event.

Forest and Photonics is a unique event that brings together the forest and technology experts both from Finland and from abroad to network, collaborate and share their challenges, opportunities and solutions. The main focus of the event is on forestry with a tight connection to photonics applications that are utilized in forestry.

One of the main questions this year is how photonics can and help solve multiple biological and ecological problems and be used in forestry especially in relation to biotic damages. From the photonics perspective there are presentations on climate modeling and satellite data analysis, remote sensing, multispectral and hyperspectral cameras and on the use of drones and satellites in forest monitoring. The possibilities that machine learning offer to forestry are also presented.
