      Dear Douglas,

      I have put few links to free or low cost GIS on the AI-GEOSTATS Softfaq.
      (See http://curie.ei.jrc.it/software/index.htm)
      I hope to improve the information I made available with the questionnaire
      I recently have sent to the list.

      As which one to get, I believe it will be mainly depending on

      1) the functions that are implemented in order to reach the objectives
      of your study;

      2) the digital format of the geographic data you will use. There are
      probably some free codes on the web to convert data. You could
      maybe have a look to the ESRI (the producer of ArcView) web pages
      to get more info on data conversion. see www.esri.com

      Hope this helps

      As 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.
