TimberMatic Maps. Information at your fingertips.

TimberMatic Maps gives operators a real-time production view to the logging site. The data between the machines are updated through a cloud service,

and all the operators working at the same work site can see all the tree species and assortments with the driving routes right down to the individual logs. 

Highlight assortments, select route or area, mark nature sites

New features assist machine operators and improve productivity.

Highlighting the assortments

starThe different timber assortments can be highlighted with different colors by marking them as favourites. This helps the forwarder operator to separate the assortments in the load space and to build the load so that it is already sorted. This speeds up the unloading considerably.

With the help of sorters that are available for the forwarder load space, unloading mixed loads is easy and productivity is vastly improved.

Route selection

roadYou can choose a 10 m wide route with the route selection tool. It is now also possible to make a narrower route selection.

Selection tool

handWith the selection tool you can select areas of different sizes. The distance from the hand-icon can be expanded or narrowed and you can edit the area with the eraser tool. You can even record the driving route and fix it with the eraser if you accidentally included extra logs.

Collect and upload directly

white paperYou can collect and directly upload the logs in the system, and easily see the amounts of different timber assortments. Even the inventory history is memorized.

Avoid ecologically sensitive or dangerous areas

mapIf the logging site has some noteworthy areas, like a pond, a steep slope, a spring, a brook or perhaps a power line, the harvester operators can mark it on the map with a comment. If needed, they can add an alert to the comment; this way, the forwarder operator is notified when approaching the area.

Communication between machine operators and the machine owner is quick and all operators working on the same site know what has been completed and what remains to be done.

TimberMatic Maps view

The operator marks the forwarded timber as transported to the storage area. The operator of the next shift knows where to start their work. There is no need for an estimate of the volume and not a single log will be left even in a dark forest, for different assortments are shown on the map right down to the single log even if they are covered by snow.

Forwarder operator can choose the desired assortment from a specific area or along a logging route and the map will show the exact volume of that assortment in the chosen area. The operators can also mark special areas on the map. This way e. g. soft ground can be avoided when planning the driving route.

The map shows all the assortments down to the single log with the logging route network. Planning the work and the best driving route will be very simple.

Control your logging operations

You’ll have total control of your operation with TimberMatic™ Maps & TimberManager™,  available on John Deere’s lineup of full-tree equipment.

Visualize your logging sites

TimberMatic Maps is a new way of visualizing a logging site. The application clarifies and improves the teamwork of the machines. The operators and contractor have a real-time view to the progress of the work site.

Even in the dark, the map makes it possible to find the logs, so no logs are left behind in the forest.
