The article systematizes the experience of solving the task of transport modeling for the ground access to the forest fires and forest resources, presented by scientific and engineering works. General characteristics of transport modeling based on the Russian and foreign experience are given; the analysis of data services and Open Source developments are the topical subjects in the development of transport projects. The main attention is paid to the review of issues of transport modeling issues in the use, protection, and reproduction of forests, taking into account the current Russian regulatory documents of the forestry. We have described the geodata sources, as well as using remote sensing data of different types and spatial resolution for the transport modeling in the forestry. The works of scientific and educational institutions represent Russian research on the forest transport modeling and forest infrastructure. They have a common understanding of forest transport accessibility as a complex issue. It is noted that the interest of researchers traditionally lies in solving environmental and economic problems of modeling. It is necessary to continue the work on the modeling for the location of fire stations, cutting areas and forest warehouses for the model territories in different regions and of different forest infrastructure’s characteristics. The development of methods and technologies to balance the infrastructural load and natural stability of forest ecosystems is described as a direction for further research. Undertaken review shows some patterns of forest transport modeling as a part of forestry using modern applied geoinformatics.

Key words: forestry, transport modeling, transport accessibility, ground access, forest fires, forest resources, forest roads, GIS, Open Source
