" GIS is an ideal tool for studying complex systems."



About Us

My name is David N. Kelly and I am the founder and President of Forest Resource Consulting (FRC). FRC was incorporated in 1994 and at that time concentrated in teaching timber supply modeling and building timber supply models using the TRIM and ATLAS models. Over the years FRC’s work evolved to include teaching ESRI GIS and developing custom ArcGIS/ArcView applications. From 1996 to 2010 I was an ESRI authorized ArcGIS instructor and taught hundreds of people to use and customize ArcView and ArcGIS.

My work with FRC now concentrates in two areas: developing custom ArcGIS applications and modeling natural resources. To this effort I bring knowledge and experience gained from working over thirty years in natural resources, software development and GIS. I have had a varied and interesting career.

GIS gives the user the power to visually examine and display not just the data but the relationships between widely differing data sources.
