Christos Liotiris

Abstract


Accessibility of the forest road network is one of the most important factors in the sustainable management of forests. This study presents the development of an information system which enhances the accessibility of the forest road network. This project uses HTML5 and CSS3 for the frontend and WAMP Server with MySQL database as backend. End users will be able to receive the necessary information and coordinates via notifications on their Android smartphone using an application. This Android application uses the Google Maps app to display the route that should be followed. Forwarding information to users is operated through Firebase Cloud Messaging. Last but not least, it should be highlighted that free and open source software was used to implement the aforementioned system.
