WWHS works with Haglof Company Group on the development of the TCruise family of forest inventory software.
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.
TCruiseDP for the Digitech Professional caliper is a highly evolved and efficient forest inventory system. It goes beyond the basic data collection capabilities of traditional field computers providing a precision electronic measurement system. Wireless communication through both infrared and Bluetooth ports offer the possibility of electronically measuring and capturing all of your critical field measurements, greatly reducing the potential for human error and increasing productivity. By integrating a Bluetooth GPS receiver and either a Vertex IV or Vertex Laser, you can literally automate all of your data measurement and capture. You have to correctly identify the tree species, but we can do the rest!
Timber Cruise (TCruise) is the heart of Heuristic Solutions Timber Cruising System product line. The program accepts data from plot, point, double point, or segmented strip cruises of stratified, or non-stratified tracts, and prepares reports by product showng volumes, sampling errors, and the sample sizes required to adchieve stated levels of precision. Volume reports by product and dbh class are optionally available. Reports showing total, and per acre timber tract dollar values by product can be printed if the user inputs current stumpage prices.
