In line with our vision of to improve our business through new technology and innovation to ensure we do things better tomorrow than we did today; HVP operate a state of the art Geographic Information System (GIS) that assists with the planning, conduct and monitoring of our operations.

The GIS incorporates data from LiDAR, conventional aerial photography, Drone technology, infield GPS, flora, fauna and cultural heritage databases and baseline mapping data.

Our GIS is constantly being updated as we harvest, replant and tend our plantations.
