F4 Tech is contributing to future foresters’ education by providing complementary SilvAssist software to colleges accredited by the Society of American Foresters (SAF). SilvAssist  is a set of GIS tools for managing forest inventory data.

Institutions with SAF accreditation will be eligible for licensing of the SilvAssist solution to integrate within their curriculum.

“Understanding the forest inventory process and how it relates to GIS is critical for today’s students of forest resource management,” said Mark Milligan, president of F4 Tech. “We believe that providing SilvAssist free of charge to SAF accredited schools is the right thing to do, and we look forward to getting that started immediately.”

F4 Tech is confident that this new partnership with forestry schools will help to enhance and improve education in the design, management, reporting and analysis of forest inventory data.

SilvAssist is a toolbar for Esri’s ArcGIS that helps to improve productivity by providing information needed for crucial business decisions. SilvAssist is compatible with: ArcGIS 9.3, 10, 10.1, 10.2, and 32 and 64-bit computers.
