Forester GPS GIS II


This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


“Forester GPS GIS II” provides tools for estimating basal area per acre for a timber stand as well as GPS data collection and mapping functions for use on the iPad. It will let you use a GPS receiver to map a timber stand or any other land parcel then create grid points over the area. You can also create features by importing feature data in Shapefiles or DXF format, by manual digitization or by entering deed calls. The acreage and perimeter of an area feature will be promptly computed. You can easily divide or combine the land plots. You will be able to record attribute information for each geographic feature. You also will be able to export the feature data as Shapefiles.

If your device has GPS capability, the Point Stakeout function could help you locate the cruise points, and the Line Stakeout function could help you stay on a transect line.

Please note: The accuracy of the location data depends on the GPS receiver used. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. The app lets you easily toggle the GPS on or off.

Customer Reviews

Impressive for deed calls and adding CAD

I have to do an agg plan on my property. This app is so cool. You can add multiple deed call sections. I did that and then in CAD (Solidworks) subdivided and exported DXF. Then you van use your own coordinate system to bring in and overlay. Then walk the lines with gps and mark the trees. So cool. I bought a cheap GPS adapter for the iPad. Tons of other tools too!
