Forest ICT Research Center aims to research proper responses to future change and demand by establishing digital forest management systems and the ICT convergence of on-site inventory data and spatial information. To this end, we utilize the Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies to innovate forest science techniques. Specifically, we seek to develop the methods to apply convergence technologies and establish intelligent forest information, the ways to enhance the utility of data from forest satellites, LiDAR, UAV, and other remote sensing devices, and lastly, the techniques to employ meteorological big-database by creating a network at a national level to address climate change.
We intend to develop digital forest management systems using the Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies such as LiDAR and IoT. We conducte research on techniques to construct the intelligent forest information system, the model of forest spatio-temporal database, and the convergence of various digital forest data.

We aim to establish basic information for forest disaster prevention and forest management by collecting real-time weather data and meteorological information in mountainous areas. To achieve our goal, we do research on developing Automatic Mountain Meteorology Observation Stations (AMOS) and Mountain Meteorology Information System (MMIS).

Our mission is to calibrate and validate forest satellite for their efficient and accurate application output at the local and regional level. We also develop a variety of techniques to utilize satellite images to identify changes in forest resources and prevent forestry disasters in forests.
