Public Domain Microcomputer Software for Forestry.
A project was conducted to develop a computer forestry/forest products bibliography applicable to high school and community college vocational/technical programs. The project director contacted curriculum clearinghouses, computer companies, and high school and community college instructors in order to obtain listings of public domain programs for the bibliography. More than 50 public domain computer programs were located. Also located and included were proprietary programs that were not an original intent of the project. The catalog has been disseminated nationwide to more than 50 persons, middle schools, high schools, and colleges. This document contains the catalog and a brief final report of the project. The catalog includes computer programs in the following areas: educational games, forest protection (fire, insects, disease), logging, mensuration, recreation, surveying, tree and shrub identification, and valuation. Names and addresses of developers and donors are included. Each program listed includes title, description, by whom it was donated, and the computer for which it was written. Some of the programs are available on Apple II disks; others must be obtained from the sources listed. (KC)
