LogBuch | Simple and efficient forest data collection

Digital solution for forestry data collection and networking of all actors in the timber process chain. Offline in the outdoor area, comfortable use thanks to voice recording and intuitive operation through a practice-oriented menu navigation in the mobile app and the web application.

LogBuch enables data aggregation in the forest, a simple evaluation of the data and further processing.  The combination of voice recording and Bluetooth button enables hands-free precise location of trees with simultaneous recording of important information about the tree, such as safety instructions or planning working procedures. The expected cut volume can be determined, and assortments planned. Foresters and harvester operators both receive detailed information (cross-linking with third party systems is supported). Technology: An A 2-frequency GNSS-receiver is connected to a smartphone to estimate the current position. A bluetooth button is used for language analysis. All spoken information can be recorded, automatically transcribed and classified, and the actual position lodged. WLAN is used for data exchange between smartphone, webserver and other users. Data can be exported as a map or table in georeferenced or not referenced formats (xlsx, GeoJson, shp, GPX, map). Applications: Preparation of timber harvesting, establishment of a digital "inventory", area mapping (also planting) by connecting recorded corner points, mapping of skid trails by the line function (harvest control or certification basis), remote navigation via Google Maps. In addition, recording of habitat trees etc., support for hunting organization (high seats, driven hunt stands, stalking routes etc.) and traffic safety measures.

Druh dreva
Kmeňové drevo
Pôvod dreva
Mobilzačný potenciál
Better and more efficient planning of mechanized timber harvest supports wood mobilization through cost reduction.
Uvažovaný druh dreva
All types of wood
Potenciál udržateľnosti
Good planning decreases damages (e.g. soil damage on logging paths or forest roads).
Vplyv na životné prostredie a biodiverzitu

Decreased damages protect the forest soil as an important part of the forest ecosystem. Efficient planning also reduces fuel consumption.

Uľahčenie implmentácie
The solution is available on the market.
Ekonomický vplyv
Good planning reduces working time and fuel consumption, resulting in cost reductions for timber harvesting operators.
Dopad na zamestnanosť
In light of aging workforces, digital solutions are expected to make forestry jobs more attractive to the next generation. The app helps to qualify staff.
