TatukGIS Desktop Editor Forestry GIS (FGIS) Plug-in

Forestry GIS (FGIS) Plug-in to the TatukGIS Desktop Editor. TatukGIS value added partner, TatukGIS Consulting, has redesigned and released the affordable Forestry GIS (FGIS) plugin to the TatukGIS Editor product, which extends the features of the TatukGIS Editor with a simple, easy-to-use, and customizable suite of tools aimed at making forestry and land management professionals' jobs easier.

FGIS can be used to update Acres (or any shape measurement) values for all polygons in a vector layer or display the Acreage (or any shape measurement) for all selected shapes in the view. FGIS has tools
for easily creating polygons that share coincident boundaries. FGIS can be used to generate a random or systematic sample of points (cruise points) within a given polygon area or search for a given Township, Range, and Section. With FGIS you can easily input a traverse description into a point layer. Other features include calculation of the best route between two points in a road network and plotting the current GPS location on a map in real-time.

The FGIS plug-in is totally customizable by the end user and includes a detailed survey data input form that can be used as a template for the creation of other data input forms.

FGIS is created by a forester who is also a GIS developer, who has spent the last decade performing custom GIS development for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources using TatukGIS and ESRI
development tools. This experience provided a great deal of insight about the GIS related needs and preferences of forestry and land management professionals, which is reflected in FGIS. For the price of just $49, any Editor licensed user can take advantage of this value-added suite of tools.

As a plugin, FGIS requires the TatukGIS Editor to function and retains all the Editor’s features. The FGIS plug-in was developed using the Editor’s built-in scripting features.
