GEOSTATS: GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS
- Appeal For Information On GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMSAs part of my forestry course at the Scottish School of Forestry, Inverness, I would like to look at the use of GIS systems in forestry.During my sandwich year placement last year with the Forestry Commission I gained some understanding of GIS and how it works through working with the GIS forester in the district. The package used was Arcview and it is with this in mind that I am appealing for information on how I could go about obtaining a copy either free or at a reduced rate as I am a student and obviously cannot afford to spend hundreds of pounds on GIS software. Any contact information e.g. e-mail, web site addresses, journals, or mailing lists where I can get information on GIS and GIS software would also be greatly appreciated.Having GIS software would enable me to produce various projects and reports for my course work to a much higher standard than for example scanning maps etc and also allow me to gain further experience in a field which will undoubtedly feature in my future career in forestry.Thanking you in anticipation,Douglas Knox.==========Douglas Knox4 Moray Place,Elgin,Moray, IV30 1NR,U.K.Tel: 01343 542057
