Abstract
Since the cost of fuel is an important factor in the use of off-road equipment, it is to the advantage of every machine owner to make the most of this necessary expense. Certain work habits and operational factors influence fuel consumption. Recent trials conducted by FPInnovations researchers have explored some ways to improve fuel intensity and measure the savings.
Abstract
Puisque le coût du carburant est un facteur important dans l’utilisation des équipements hors route, il est à l’avantage de tout propriétaire de machine de tirer le maximum de cette dépense nécessaire. Certaines habitudes de travail et facteurs opérationnels ont une influence sur la consommation de carburant. De récents essais menés par les chercheurs de FPInnovations ont permis d’explorer certaines pistes d’amélioration de l’intensité énergétique et de mesurer les économies.

Abstract
Stream networks shown on public maps are often incomplete and their accuracy fails to meet the full needs of forest managers. Stream Network Extraction (SNE) from a LiDAR Digital Elevation Model (DEM) has the potential to add to the already mapped streams and provide more hydrographical information. This report describes the potential of two different SNE programs with a LiDAR-derived DEM.
