SOLO Forest software

SOLO Forest is the only GIS mapping software designed specifically for forestry applications. It combines the proven flexibility of SOLO Field software with a streamlined interface that makes it easy to acess the functions you use most.

Puts common functions in a handy toolbar

You'll find SOLO Forest is easy to use because it incorporates the features, functions, and terminology you already use. A handy forestry toolbar gives you easy access to commonly used forestry functions and map features. You can also custome toolbars for easy access to your favorite functions.

Keeps track of your progress

With SOLO Forest, you can make sure you field work is complete while you're still in the field. It is the only GIS mapping software that can interface with forest inventory software and open a form as you navigate to each sample plot. Once you've visited a plot, the point symbol changes. So it's easy to verify you've visited all the sample plots in the stand.

Generates custom grids in the field

SOLO Forest is the only program out-of-the-box that lets you generate custom grids in the field. That means that you can adjust for topography or other adverse conditions when you're in the field. You can generate grids in a square, rectangular, or hexagonal patterns, and SOLO Forest gives you the flexible options for ordering index points.

Works with your instruments

SOLO Forest supports interaction with third-party forest invetory software and a variety of instrumentation. It also works in most common file formats. SOLO Forest works on any Windows CE, compatible platform, and it's ideal for the Trimlbe Foresty Nomad, Recon, Ranger, and Yuma rugged handheld devices.
