# Geoprocessing

Geoprocessing provides visual information about CENIBRA’s forest-related routines. In order to geographically represent the reality of the company’s forest environment, it is necessary to integrate a number of areas of knowledge, such as geodesy, topography, photogrammetry, remote sensing, cartography and system analysis; several devices, such as GPS and theodolites; expert softwares, such as Geographic Information Systems and image treatment; and techniques like topographic survey, mapping and special surveys. Additionally, several methodologies are employed, such as data modeling, coordinate transfer and network surveys. The outcome of such an integrated knowledge is the reporting of information associated to georeferenced digital maps that are extremely useful to the areas of silviculture, harvest, environment, forest management and support to the company’s strategic studies.
