FOKUS 2000



FOKUS 2000 - a success story in Baden-Wuerttemberg. Fokus 2000 is the forestry information system of the state forestry service in Baden-Wuerttemberg (Forst BW).

In 1998 we developed, based on already existing technical concepts and a subsequent feasibility study, extensive requirement specifications in cooperation with the state forestry service. This was followed by almost 2 years long realization phase in which parts of the development where transferred, accompanied by focused quality control, into the test operation phase. All modules and functional blocks where thoroughly tested in an special pilot forestry office.

2002 followed the starting signal for the live operation of FOKUS 2000, its success continued until this present day.

The implementation in 163 forestry offices, 2 forestry directorates and one head office took place in 3 steps. Every step was accompanied by intensive schooling. Until today, the system enjoys such a good reputation and user acceptance that even the extensive administrative reforms in Baden-Wuerttemberg could not stop FOKUS 2000 persistence in Forst BW. Today significantly more than 1000 users daily work with FOKUS 2000.

To date, FOKUS 2000 is maintained by GISCON Systems GmbH in close cooperation with Forst BW
