Thank You for taking your valuable time to visit our website. I.R.I.S. has been designing, developing, integrating, implementing, and supporting state-of-the-art Forestry, Natural Resource, and Environmental Information Systems since 1995. Our reputation for delivering innovative, rugged, low-cost systems that work day-in and day-out under harsh conditions is based upon:

Our Mission: Our mission is to distribute Conservation Technology around the world - while also helping people work faster, cheaper, and better. We have provided cost-effective, highly-reliable, Award-Winning Forestry, Natural Resource, and Environmental Information Systems for over 20 years. If your organization owns, manages, protects, utilizes, researches, restores, or has other impacts on Forestry, Natural Resources, or the Environment, then you would probably benefit from our products and services! Why our mission (and your help) are important.

Long-Term Vision: Our long-term vision is to establish distributors in every country of the world to implement/adapt U.S. Conservation Techologies. This is necessary because the environment, ecology, working conditions, and human factors vary greatly from one place to another. We intend to provide low-cost ruggedized PC's, ultra-rugged handhelds, specialized software, mapping data, and services to 2cd and 3rd world countries to: improve natural resources management and conservation; reduce waste and improve utilization; improve multiple-use management; support long-term planning and sustained yield; optimize landuses and reduce environmental impacts; protect unique natural areas and rare/endangered species; reduce global warming and upheaval; as well as help people work faster, cheaper, and smarter. Please email distributorship inquiries to director@irisinfosys.org.

Strong Leadership: The Founder and Director of I.R.I.S., Charles (Chuck) Nilsson, has over 35 years of education and experience that make him a leader in his field. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with joint degrees in Forestry, Business Management, and Natural Resource Information Systems from Syracuse University and the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. In addition to working his way through college, he has worked for International Paper Company (as a Field Forester); ESRI Redlands (as a Lead ArcGIS Applications Programmer); and the Research Branch of the USDA Forest Service (as an ArcGIS/Remote Sensing Specialist). He is grateful for many honors and awards, including an Edna Baily-Sussman Fellowship; #1 NYS Tree Farm Inspector; "1st Place Overall" in a nationwide Natural Resources Software Contest; Businessmen of the Year; the USFS's “Point of Light” award, and Who’s Who.
