Comparison of Software Suites

The Forest Biometrics Research Institute (FBRI) gets frequent inquiries about the similarities and differences between the FPS software suite and other software tools available or known in the forest industry.  This has become such a significant and repeated topic that a handout was developed for the 2014 International Conference of the Society of American Foresters (SAF), Canadian Institute of Forestry (CIF) and International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) in Salt Lake City, Utah, United States.

The comparisons provided in the following PDF are abstracts of more detailed comparisons.  The glossary in the back pages provides some definition of the individual factors being compared.
