Tracking Christmas Trees

December 10, 2008

How do foresters keep track of their work in the great outdoors? Sweden exports a great number of “Christmas Trees” from their well managed forest system. Organization is key and Swedish foresters rely on rugged handheld technology to keep track of their daily progress. They take notes of location and work performed, forming a geographic outline of where they have worked. Each night they synchronize via the internet to keep their companies abreast of the progress and update their geo-coded databases. They rely on a DURATEQ outfitted with an integrated GPS module and extended battery for day-long performance, and ESRI’s ArcPAD Software for data logging. The DURATEQ is a favorite because it is the thinnest and lightest rugged handheld available.

Whether or not your tree was found with the use of a DURATEQ handheld, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
