Bayerische Staatsforsten Improves Forest
Management Using the ArcGIS Server Image Extension
By Matthew DeMeritt, ESRI

Bayerische Staatsforsten (BaySF), the largest tim-
ber supplier in Germany, with a staff of more than
3,000, vastly improved its image management
practices using ESRI’s ArcGIS Server Image
extension. The company recently completed
16 months of ArcGIS Server operational use with
zero downtime. Even while BaySF created, edited,
and published new services, its 1,400 Web users
and 20 concurrent local area network clients ex-
perienced no service interruptions. To this system,
the company added the ArcGIS Server Image ex-
tension. This made it possible to deliver raw and
preprocessed imagery to clients via a Web service
available on BaySF’s intranet.

Planning Forest Operations:
A Rule-Based Spatial DSS Built with ModelBuilder
By Daniele Lubello, University of Padova, Italy

Forestry management in Italy faces many chal-
lenges. Most forestland is privately held. Steep
terrain and lack of infrastructure make access to
forestland difficult. Also, highly regulated pro-
tected areas limit the volume of timber that can
be harvested per surface unit. These factors drive
harvest costs up and make Italy’s timber less com-
petitive in the market. Improving operational effi-
ciency through better management is one way that
the Italian forest industry can enhance its competi-
tive position.
  Now, a GIS-based model design provides a de-
cision support system (DSS) for forest managers.
It models wood production and hydraulic and soil
protection in steep Alpine areas. It also includes
biodiversity, conservation, and tourism factors.
For example, managers can analyze ways that the
density and size of standing trees influence skid-
ding operations. They can create forest plans that     Data used to define

Managing the Urban Forest
By Peter Godfrey, ESRI

Accurate and current data is an essential compo-
nent of urban tree management. GIS helps cities
manage forestry projects efficiently and reduce
management costs. City staff members use GIS
to inspect and update tree data, depict these
changes on a map, then schedule maintenance
activities. They can also create maps and reports,
support day-to-day operations, and provide tools
to measure and meet species diversity and canopy
cover goals.
  GIS brings together different types of data for
intelligent planning. A city’s tree database may
include tree location, species, diameter breast
height (DBH), condition, and growth recordings.
In addition to tree attribute data, the urban for-
est planner can include other relevant features
from the city’s database such as streets, curb lines,
building footprints, overhead and underground
utilities, workforce areas, pest/disease quaran-
