FScruiser V2 – Mobile Timber Cruise Data Collection

FScruiser V2 (version 2) is the latest generation of timber cruising field data collection software for the U.S. Forest Service’s National Cruise System. The mobile version of FScruiser is designed to operate on devices using the Windows CE, Windows Mobile and Windows Embedded Handheld family of mobile operating systems, such as the Juniper Systems Allegro 2 and the Trimble Geo 7X.

FScruiser V2 will not run on Android devices. The next version, FScruiser V3 will be an Android application and will run on newer Android devices. FScruiser V3 will be available later in 2021.

FScruiser currently supports the cruise methods outlined in the Timber Cruising Handbook (FSH 2409.12), including fixed plot, fixed count-measure, point sampling, point count-measure, sample tree, classical 3P, fixed plot-3P, point-3P, 3P-point, and sample tree-3P.
