This month, Let’s Talk About Planted Forests webinar will focus on Virtual Forests project results: new IT tools for forests education.

The project: Virtual Forests is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. This project was coordinated by a member of the IEFC and the University of Valladolid and aims to develop educational resources for university students, professionals and the general public based on the virtual tools available to foresters. The diversity of resources included educational data sets (LIDAR, field, etc.), MOOCs, test plots and virtual forests allowing 3D immersion in a wide variety of forestry contexts in the temperate and tropical zone.

To discuss this subject, and particularly, IO the IEFC invited 4 experts from the University of Valladoid – UVa. Here’s a quick overview of our speakers and topics:

  • Guillermo Vega Gorgojo: Linked Open Data in modelling and simulation platforms
  • Pilar Valbuena Perez & Eduardo Gómez Sánchez: Enhancing Forest Education through Conversational Agents: A Chatbot for Educational Activities in the Context of the Virtual Forests Project
  • Jose Arturo Reque Kilchenmann: Integrated marteloscopes virtual tour

This event is co-organized by the IEFC, the IUFRO task force “Resilient Planted Forest Serving Society & Bioeconomy” and the EFI Research Network on Planted Forests
