Our customer base is comprised of forestry and energy companies, as well as businesses active in the
With our solutions you can manage your forests and land
property as a whole. Based on map data, you can check the
forests and land you own or manage. To help you, there are
multi-level maps, as well as the height models of the trees,
according to laser scan data. You can plan various measures
to be implemented to your forest and land, and order these
measures from your subcontracting partners directly by using this system. You will also be able to look at reports on
how the measures are progressing.
The system takes into consideration various protection objects; you can create storage points, as well as adding images or videos of the landscape to the data. Furthermore,
this system also helps you manage immaterial rights, such
as hunting rights. In our system geographic information can
contain several elements – for example, it can contain the
location of a certain vehicle, the route driven, or the exact
location of a particular storage point or asset.
Maps play an essential role in the visualization of geographic information. Bitcomp’s map service has been designed
as multi-layered, and we can import contents from various
information sources, in order to enrich the maps. We can
use a desired base map for reference add weather information on the map, property boundary information, as well as
the objects of the own work sites. The efficiency of map use
increases when it is possible to combine information from

models. With particular focus on online services, Blom provides data and solutions to customers in
government, enterprise and consumer markets and enables partners to create applications using

Data models and BlomURBEX
Forestry and vegetation mapping
Geographical information, in the form of satellite imagery
or low resolution aerial imagery, is a common feature within the maps and directory tools available on the web. Whilst
these images enrich traditional maps, they are far from
complete as they provide only a flat view of the landscape.
When viewing urban environments, vertical imagery is less
intuitive for users as the angle and resolution shows little
more than roofs and pavements.
Blom offers remote sensing based forest inventory services
and are able to deliver inventory services from planning to
final product delivery. Blom has experience in delivering
forest inventory services for millions of forest hectares in
Europe and North America.
Blom is specialised in the creation of detailed geodata models, ranging from traditional vector maps to LiDAR data, urban 3D models and high resolution aerial imagery including
oblique views of thousands of cities in Europe. Blom has a
powerful, cloud-based platform, BlomURBEX that can serve
geodata models both off-line and on-line into a wide variety
of software platforms and GIS tools
BlomSTREET™ is a collection of georeferenced, high-resolution, 360 degree panoramic images that are captured from
ground level. Compared to other free street level services
on the web, BlomSTREET users have the ability to take measurements directly from the imagery. It’s also possible to
download data in various file formats and use information
for various inventory purposes such as traffic sign, light pole
and road condition inventory. Metadata is included, meaning it’s possible for clients to know exactly what time and
day the images were captured.
In a typical forest inventory project Blom uses LiDAR, aerial
imagery and field sample plots from the target inventory
area. With these datasets stand attributes can be predicted by tree species. In Scandinavia attributes are predicted
for pine, spruce and deciduous trees. For each tree species
many attributes are provided, including mean diameter,
mean height, number of stems, basal area and volume.
Blom’s vegetation analysis services are targeted for all kind
of linear assets such as powerlines, pipelines, roads and

GIS Consultants Ltd (Paikkatietokonsultit Oy) is a Finnish technology-neutral consulting company focused on spatial data and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The company helps its clients in planning how to make GIS and spatial data support their business and/or operation. The company does e.g.
GIS based study and analysis projects, helps in drafting GIS strategies and also helps in managing projects
for acquiring or developing GIS.
Support for GIS implementation
Case: FORMIS Project
GIS Consultants often supports its clients in strategic implementation of GIS by helping to describe a target state for
GIS in five years’ time and the steps to reach that target.
The company also helps in organising data, designing and
setting up a spatial database, performing spatial analysis or
configuring a reporting routine.
Currently GIS Consultants Ltd is involved (as sub-consultant
to Niras Finland) in supporting a development cooperation
project to develop a Forest Management Information System (FORMIS) for Vietnam.
Support in GIS acquisition and development
Rather than providing applications GIS Consultants Ltd is
focused in helping its clients specify and buy GIS solutions
and manage GIS acquisition projects.
These consulting services include support in writing requirements specifications, managing the tendering process, tender evalution and supervision of the system implementation.
The company emphasizes its position as a neutral consultant working solely from customer interests by not engaging in the business of developing tailored IT solutions or
offering system integration projects.
By storing and managing versatile forestry information
FORMIS will support Vietnam Forest Administration and its
regional offices in the 63 provinces in planning and decision
making. The system also offers a platform and data interfaces for sharing forestry data to all actors in the forestry
System implementation (using open source software) is
done by local companies according to the specifications laid
out by the project.

data is an essential part of almost every project Ramboll
is involved in. The software for handling geographic data is
used daily by our experts on versatile assignments. GIS is
an IT tool that provides overview of data with a geographic
relation. By combining data and connecting it to a map, it is
possible to identify and analyze different data relations. GIS
makes it easier to communicate complex data relations in a
visual way that is easily understood by everyone.
Several new technics, such as laser scanning, 3D photography and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) measurements, are
merging with GIS. Utilization of GIS data in an effective way
offers new prospects for our clients. Future megatrends
like industrial internet, building information modeling, city
models, infrastructure facility management, machine guidance and indoor navigation are all based on location information.

Accurate 3D models are crucial for city planning. Initial data can be produced for example by combining
underground 3D models to laser scanning and 3D photography.

From manual inspections towards automation
Even today road asset management processes rely on visual
inspections, manual reporting and inventories made by utilizing expensive hardware. All of them require human work
to produce the refined information to a client for decision
making. For that reason they are not feasible options for
producing data extensively as a continuous process. However there is growing demand for a solution to solve the
existing problem: how to cost-efficiently monitor the state
of the assets both in short and long term to have the capability of managing and maintaining them?

available in our intuitive web-based user interface and it is
transferrable to different systems used by our clients.
The fundamental vision of enabling the major part of manual asset management processes to be automated is the
main driving force of Vionice. Our state of the art computer
vision solutions are offering a completely reformed mindset
for asset management. The shift from manual, thus slow
and expensive inspections and inventories to computer vision based data production will make asset management
processes more efficient by saving both funds and human

exciting, turn after turn.
In the core of our service is streamlined data flow from mobile devices through processing to our client. With our mobile application video feed and data from various sensors in
