Project realization:
The aim of the project is to verify the appropriateness of using Field-Map technology in forestry and nature conservation and to prepare conditions for the implementation of this technology into forestry practice in specific Mexican conditions.

Forests in Mexico cover 55.3 million hectares and most of them are municipal and state-owned. 18% of the local population lives below the poverty line, especially in the countryside. Therefore, the government in creating a law on sustainable development of forestry began to support services that contribute to improving the environment and living conditions of the population. Government institutions have also begun to search for advanced technologies for collecting, processing and recording forestry data. Already in October 2016 the applicant secured the presentation of Czech technology Field-Map (FM) for the government institutions that give decisions in the field of natural resource management.
The project will study the feasibility that will allow Mexican side consider investment in the Czech technology.
