Timber Cruise (TCruise) is a PC MS Windows timber inventory program that can handle small or large scale inventories, and is the core of the product line. The companion program, TCruise for Windows CE data collection software (TCWinCE), allows users of TCruise to rapidly collect field data using a spreadsheet interface on a variety of handheld computers, and import the data into TCruise for processing. Two other programs in the product line Tree Profile Fitter (TProfile), and Tree Volume Equation (TVolume) are designed to give users the ability create new tree profile, and volume equations for inclusion into TCruise. TProfile fits tree stem profile (taper) functions to stem analysis data. The profiles can then be imported into TCruise. TVolume will prepare volume equations from an equation imported from TProfile, or from a volume table obtained from an external source. TProfile, and TVolume extend the applicability of TCruise to virtually any place in the world.
TIMS DP is a multi-use, out-of-the box timber inventory data collection system. Use it to collect standing forest inventory data, scale logs, or measure piles of timber in a wood yard. Connect GPS positions to other registered data and get a full overview of assets, in the forest or at the lumberyard. TIMS DP is an excellent choice for operators performing a variety of timber measuring work. Multiple files (lists) with information on stand, GPS location of piles and logs, identified by list name, district, date, forest department, forest name, section, stand, wood class and more can all be stored. More than 20 000 unique trees or logs and up to 5000 piles can be stored in the Digitech Professional with TIMS DP. Files can be exported as XML, tab delimited text files and even KML for display in Google Earth or other GIS programs.
The process is simple, collect stem profile data by measuring individual trees from butt to tip or vice versa using the Haglof Digitech Professional. Next, import the data into TProfile and build the local profile function. Lastly, import the profile function into TCruise and you are ready to begin using YOUR local profile functions specific to your region!
