SilviaTerra was rolling deep at the 2017 Western Mensurationists conference at UBC this year. With five biometricians, we were only smaller than the OSU and UBC contingents!

Zack gave a talk on “Deriving better treelists from imagery-assisted cruises” and Brian discussed his PhD work on “Plant traits datasets to improve general individual tree biomass models for natural forest inventories.” It was great to spend a weekend with the West Coast biometrics community and we’re looking forward to the 2018 meeting!

Co-Founder and CEO
Zack Parisa is the co-founder and CEO of NCX. Over the last decade, he has developed and pioneered precision forestry tools that are revolutionizing the way that forests can be measured, valued, and managed. Using satellites, cloud computing, and machine learning, NCX worked with Microsoft to create “Basemap,” the first high-resolution forest inventory of the United States. It is now using this data to build new markets for forest values beyond timber, such as carbon, wildlife habitat, and fire risk. Zack is a forester and biometrician by training. He earned an MFS from Yale University, and a BS in forestry from Mississippi State University.
