Forest One, Inc.

F1.Cruise is a Web-based application to assist foresters in mapping and planning forest appraisals. Built using Esri's ArcIMS and ArcSDE, F1.Cruise is a custom Java GIS front-end Web client and a Java OpenGL 3D Modeler. It is an advanced forestry ArcIMS Web solution, and it is sold on a subscription basis. It provides access to hundreds of gigabytes of aerial imagery, satellite imagery, topographical maps, and other data sets needed by foresters. Any forester with no GIS training can easily manipulate the data layers, add new data and shapes, perform image analysis, model a forest in three dimensions, and save data centrally within Forest One's spatial database to be shared with other foresters or subcontractors.
