A GIS solution to be developed by Indonesia for its forest and ecological management is expected to help enhance the country's forest productivity in a sustainable manner.

Indonesia's Forest Utilisation Monitoring Centre (FUMC) located in its West Papuan province, has unveiled plans to develop a forest and ecological GIS solution for its long-term ecological research for sustainable forestry management.

For years, the FUMC has continually aligned its efforts to the development of technical and professional manpower in the field of forest production, and as well as the promotion of the sustainable use of forest resources to meet market demands.

SuperGIS Desktop 3, the GIS solution selected for this endeavour, will help the centre in its efforts to improve forest productivity. It will be applied to the forest and ecological GIS system to process the massive amounts of GIS data and to accomplish complex GIS tasks.

With its powerful analysis functions, efficient editing capability, enhanced data processing performance, and customised GIS tools, local authorities and researchers at the centre will be able to arrive at well-informed decisions that are crucial for their efforts in fostering a sustainable ecology and forest development.
