Reconstruction in Vlaardingen

Aug, 2021

Our partner Bomenwacht Nederland is working with the municipality of Vlaardingen for a project at the Oosthavenkade. Work on the quay wall has to be carried out and a redesign of the street lay-out is planned. All that alongside thirty mature plane trees in the street!

Bomenwacht asked us to contribute and accurately map the trees, so that the right information is available in every phase of the project. Not only valuable information from the trees themselves, but also information about the tree in relation to the environment and calculating the value of the ecosystem services were the starting points.

Scanning partner Geozicht went out to scan the street with their mobile scanner. We convert the millions of measurement points they collected into high-quality tree information with our deep learning model. Accurate location determination, exact dimensions and of course the Eco Impact of every tree! But we also provide insights about the tree in relation to its environment.

Can the equipment do the work without hitting the branches? Where should fences be placed to protect the entire crown volume? These are all questions that the collected information can answer.

Awesome to use the Treetracker tree information for the preservation of these beautiful trees!
