Étude comparative
Abstract
FERIC a comparé un système de surveillance peu coûteux utilisant un récepteur GPS March II et un système de navigation Satloc disponible commercialement, pour déterminer si le système moins cher pouvait surveiller les opérations aériennes d'ensemencement ou de pulvérisation. Bien qu'il semble prometteur, le système de coût modique était moins précis que le système SATLOC.

Abstract
The forested landscapes in Canada feature numerous wetlands, such as fens, bogs, and swamps that present both environmental and operational challenges during the planning and construction of resource roads. In 2013, FPInnovations documented the construction of a section of resource road built across a treed bog and established a 700-m section for long-term monitoring. The road presented in this Info Note is located in the Alberta-Pacific Forest Industries’ Forest Management Agreement area in northeast Alberta. This Info Note describes the results of the road elevation and culvert surveys following two years of monitoring. Further information on the construction techniques used at this site is available in Winter road construction for all-season access across a wetland (Gillies, 2014).
