September 27, 2006 -- GeoDecisions, an award-winning leader in the information technology industry specializing in geographic information systems (GIS), has implemented a Web-based version of FORECON’S Timber, Inventory, Growth, Evaluation, and Reporting (TIGER) application. FORECON is a multi-disciplinary forestry and natural resources consulting firm.
TIGER Web is one of the first solutions in the timber industry to offer owners, investors, and management specialists access to their own data through a secure, Web-based environment. Built on ESRI®’s ArcIMS® and ArcSDE frameworks, users can run customized and standardized growth models on stands, tracts, and management units, as well as generate reports in PDF and Microsoft® Excel formats. The ability to query the database for a wide variety of stand conditions offers a powerful yet easy-to-use process.
TIGER Web also enables timber owners to quickly prepare quarterly and annual reports. They can interactively view, summarize, and generate growth information via a mapping interface to more proactively manage their resources and make more-informed business decisions.
Using the latest GIS technologies and a simple and intuitive browser-based menu of functions, TIGER Web offers users the ability to better manage resources and collect, view, and analyze data. With TIGER Web, the ability to utilize real-time growth, reporting, and mapping functions from any location is available at the click of a mouse, saving time and money.
