Company Biography

Aerial cartography is the foundation of all infrastructures. Possessing a high degree of credibility, our operations parallel those of European and American countries, of which the majority of infrastructure has national aerial survey mapping centers responsible for the organization, creation, and execution of aerial telemetry and cartography strategy. Throughout the years, our organization has been responsible for the creation of aerial mapping blueprints and the execution of field survey observation missions. Our experienced technical staff utilizes aerial survey planes such as PA-31, BE-350, and BE-200, as well as survey equipment such as DMC digital mapping cameras, ADS40 no-load digital scanners, digital mapping instruments, and resource surveying instruments to provide base information about critical infrastructure. We supply data for agricultural production, forest management, territorial planning, regional planning, resource development, and land use planning for railways, airports, harbors, reservoirs, and mines.

Our organization will thoroughly utilize optimized aerial mapping instruments, experienced personnel, as well as our vast collection of historical video data to hold ourselves accountable for completing our mission of aerial mapping throughout the country. Our mission is to strengthen aerial mapping planning and to construct a complete video database to provide our countrymen with the most efficient and precise aerial mapping information.

The Challenge

• Intensive aerial survey research
To elevate professional knowledge, we utilize aerial survey equipment to execute professional drawing and field resource surveys.

• Enrich Taiwan territory information
Photograph and collect Taiwan area aerial survey videos to build aerial survey database and enrich land information, providing data as basis for government policy development. Provide other industries with data for architectural planning programs or enhancement of existing scholarly research.

Our core values lay in our beliefs in making Taiwan a better place. Through the photography and collection of aerial survey data of the Taiwan area by professional mapping firms, we are able to enrich land information as well as to aid scholarly research. The challenge we face at the moment is how to correctly preserve these critical assets under the novel technologies of today.

The Solution


We chose QSAN XN8012D to build 800TB of storage space as it utilizes Dual (Active-Active) architecture and is the only brand in Taiwan capable of achieving 99.9999% high availability design with hot swappable components and no single point of failure, providing a true multi-function unified system architecture. We are able to achieve versatile and efficient data backup through various protocols. Taiwan Forestry Bureau Topology

The Benefits

Worth mentioning is QSAN XN8012D’s standout ability to defend against cybersecurity threats, using external protection configuration to control levels of firewall and entry accordingly to defend against various types of situations and even halt access from specific IPs. Paired with SSH/SSL synchronization, data security is ensured during transmission.

Simultaneously, enabling the data protection function prevents hackers from locking system data for ransom. QSAN provides many types of data protection measures, starting from the prevention of alteration or encryption of data, to searching for ransomware to protect systems from infiltration.

Ultimately, to avert unexpected situations, we should rely on data backups as the last line of defense. Regular backup can ensure data integrity as well as provide safety measures for disaster recovery.
