Falcon’s advances in remote sensing technology contribute to the revolutionary forest information solutions and services now earning the company honors
Doylestown, PA (PRWEB) November 10, 2004 -- Falcon Informatics is making
headlines as a “Company to Watch” at the Eastern Technology Council’s 2004
The company has quickly earned an impressive reputation as the world leader in forest information services and solutions by crafting a cutting-edge and highly effective solution to the time-consuming task of performing land asset inventories and analysis. Adam Rousselle, Falcon's founder and president, acquired a Finnish company that had developed a unique application capturing individual tree crowns in aerial photography. He then hired a team of expert foresters and software developers to integrate it with remote sensing technology into a unique analytical process producing revolutionary forest information services.
Falcon Informatics has received global recognition for its use of NASA’s remote sensing technology to identify and analyze high-value forest and land assets. Since 1997, Falcon has analyzed more than 4,500,000 acres located in North and South America, Indonesia, Finland, and Brazil. Further, the company has been instrumental in supporting a variety of environmental and economic efforts, including the President’s Illegal Logging Initiative.
Falcon’s customers include such recognized names as International Paper, Boise, Forest Systems, Forest Capital Partners, the U.S. Army’s Fort Benning and Fort AP Hill and the BLM - Bureau of Land Management who turn to Falcon Informatics to support their business-critical investment issues such as whether to buy, sell or hold land.
The Enterprise Awards are the Eastern Technology Council’s most prestigious and competitive regional honors for technology companies and their leaders. Finalists and winners are leaders and companies with vision and impact. Winners are being recognized at a black-tie awards event on November 11, 2004 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
