So what is ForestPal all about? was created to continue the free online resource center for land managers within the GIS/GPS community.

Our most popular download continue to be fGIS because it is a FREE and very robust GIS program. It allows the user to, among other things, manage and edit ESRI shapefiles. Further, it has built in transparency - something the very expensive ArcView 3.X series does not.

This service is run for and paid for by volunteers who feel that there should be an avenue for students, teachers, small landowners, and consultants to have access to the tools they need when finances are an issue.

We are always looking for if you have a product that you wish to showcase to our user base please submit your request to
