Coillte Case Study

Customer Name:Coillte


The Problem

Coillte is Ireland's leading forestry company which was established under the Forestry Act 1988 to manage state owned forests commercially. With over 438,000 hectares of forest land of vital national economic, social and environmental importance, Coillte required a Geographical Information System to help manage and maintain all of the land under their control.

The Forest Inventory and Planning System (FIPS GIS) was developed to fulfil this requirement.

What We Did

Mallon Technology was involved in three principal areas of this project.

GIS Software Solution

This was built upon Microstation GeoGraphics and Oracle as they provided a comprehensive and scalable solution that could accommodate such a large variety of datasets.

System Support

Mallon Technology provided Coillte with system maintenance, upgrades, technical support and data updates based on a Service Level Agreement.

Training Services

Mallon Technology also provided a number of bespoke training courses at a variety of levels from system user to administrator. The courses included introduction to GIS training, FIPS GIS training and Oracle SQL Database training
