Background Information

Forest Research (FR) is the research agency of the Forestry Commission, and a world leader in applied forest science and a trusted and recognised provider of expertise, data, products and services for governments and the tree, wood, forest and natural resource sectors. Please explore www.forestresearch.gov.uk to find out more information about our organisation.

The National Forest Inventory (NFI) is run by the Inventory and Forecasting Unit of IFOS and monitors the location, extent and condition of woodlands throughout Great Britain. It does this by means of construction and regular maintenance and updating of a digital spatial map of British woodlands using information from aerial photography, remote sensing and administrative sources. This is augmented with a large field survey operation with many thousands of individual survey sites covering a representative sample of woodlands across Great Britain. The NFI field survey is designed as a continuous survey of woodland on a 5-year cycle, with repeat surveying of most sites in each cycle. The operation is currently reaching the final stages of the second cycle with the 3rd cycle starting in 2020.

You will work as part of a team that manages and supports several national forest inventory geographic information systems. You will be responsible for ensuring the continued smooth running of the National Forest Inventory and Public Forest Estate databases and analytical tools. Your task, as a Data Engineer, is to organise the collection of information, its processing and storage.
