Project Code: CANFOR-01-067
Area:Applied Research
Sponsor:Canadian Forest Products

The primary purpose of this Project was to produce a software application based upon "fuzzy theory" that would enable foresters to make critical operational assignments to harvested areas.

The primary objective was to create a decision system that reads in operational and strategic level information in order to formulate harvest prescriptions that facilitate the management of liability across an allocated landbase.

During the latter part of 2005 and early 2006, GISmo Solutions Ltd. undertook a pilot Project to test the process. Due to the degree of complexity that was encountered when "fuzzy logic" was applied to try and develop a working application, and subsequent to a review of GISmo’s report -it was decided to terminate the Project at the completion of the pilot stage.

Project results to termination are contained in a sixty-two page report entitled "Silviculture Prescription Assignment Decision System (SPADS) Using Integrated Probability and Artificial Intelligence Theories", prepared GISmo Solutions Ltd., and dated February 21, 2006.
