Team & Company Profile

Forest Mapping Management (fmm) G.m.b.H. was founded in 1989. In its early years, fmm specialised mainly in forestry services. Forest inventories and management planning as well as digital forest maps and the implementation of geospatial data have been part of fmm’s field of work ever since. Fmm‘s latest developments concentrate on solutions for mobile devices.
Starting with smaller aerial surveys for forestry operations, around the millennium a boom in aerial photography caused the photogrammetry-division to evolve as a second pillar for fmm.
Fmm currently occupies around 20 employees including computer scientists, geographers, surveyors, foresters and pilots.
