A robust and scalable database to expedite and coordinate the development of a recognized, secure and well-funded forest growth and yield sector.


The Challenge

The Forest Growth Organization of Western Canada (FGrOW) plays a lead role in growth and yield research, and related policy development in Western Canada. FGrOW required new tools to collaborate and share data with members and other supporting organizations.

The Solution

Tesera worked with FGrOW to build an innovative web-based solution that pools FGrOW member data into an association-wide database that supports the development and validation of forestry growth models. The new solution provides data uploading and validation capabilities, supports GY protocols and standards, and allows members to easily generate reports and export data.

The Result

The permanent sample plot database provides FGrOW with a robust and scalable application. It allows members to easily store, search and share data, while also accommodating advanced analytics and the future information and knowledge requirements of FGrOW members.
