Luigi Cappel‘s insight:

We will see more and more technology in the near future, able to give us intel on current conditions. Technology has been around for some time that can run health checks, volume and even tree genus typing from the air and then display that as big Data on a map.

Very powerful for emergencies, also to get a real picture on the devastation of forests around the world that are not consistent with sustainability practice required to slow the rate of climate change.
