Software for forestry planning and analysis

Last changed: 21 September 2021

The Heureka system is a series of software developed at SLU that allows the user to perfom a larger amount of different analysis and management plans for forestry. The system can perform short and long term projections of timber, economy, environmental conservation, recreation and carbon sequestration.

Heureka is a powerful system with multiple functions. Using the system therefore requires certain experience of computer based systems and forest planning.
