Abstract
Harvest operations on soft soils can be particularly challenging in order to respect site and soil disturbance guidelines as well as operational requirements. To address the challenges of operating on soft soils, FPInnovations has worked on solutions designed to reduce disturbance on weak soils while minimizing implementation and investment costs by using machines already being used in the operation.

Abstract
Computer technology continues to evolve at blinding speed. Today’s mobile technology enables what used to be recorded on desktop computers or on paper just a few years ago. Now, data can be viewed, shared and recorded on devices such as smart phones or other mobile devices used within harvesting operations. In addition, telecommunications capabilities in Canada have significantly improved, providing connectivity where it was not available in the past, although there are still large areas where forestry operates with limited cellular communication services. In order to better orient its technology development strategies, FPInnovations has invited a number of its members throughout Canada to take an on-line survey to obtain information on the current and future state of technology platforms, data collections mechanisms and communications being used or soon-to-be used in forestry field operations. This information will help FPI understand the current state of technology and the direction its members are heading to with respect to mobile computing needs.

Abstract
La technologie informatique continue à évoluer à une vitesse fulgurante. La technologie actuelle permet de saisir des informations qui étaient, il y a quelques années à peine, enregistrées dans des ordinateurs de bureau ou consignées sur papier. Aujourd’hui, les données peuvent être visualisées, partagées et enregistrées sur des appareils tels que des téléphones intelligents ou sur d’autres appareils mobiles utilisés dans le cadre des opérations forestières. Les télécommunications dans notre vaste pays se sont aussi considérablement améliorées, fournissant une connectivité dans des endroits qui en étaient auparavant dépourvus, même s’il reste encore de grandes régions où les opérations en forêt se déroulent avec des services limités de communications. Dans le but de mieux orienter ses stratégies de développement en matière de technologie, FPInnovations a invité plusieurs de ses membres partout au Canada à répondre à un sondage en ligne afin de recueillir des renseignements relatifs à l’état actuel et futur des plateformes technologiques, aux mécanismes de collecte des données et aux communications qui sont utilisées actuellement ou qui le seront prochainement dans les opérations forestières sur le terrain. Ces renseignements nous aideront à comprendre l’état actuel des technologies ainsi que les avenues vers lesquelles nos membres se dirigent en ce qui touche les besoins d’informatique mobile. Les résultats de l’étude seront pour leur part utilisés pour guider notre programme de recherche. Ils seront partagés avec les participants.
