MapServer came out of the University of Minnesota - Department of Forest Resources. One big reason was the widespread use of Landsat (and GIS in general) for inventory purposes. Forestry, at least in MN, was quick to embrace spatial technologies. Landsat in particular was at just the right resolution (spatial, radiometric) for that discipline.

just wondering, how many members of your community do have their origin in forestry? Seems relatively many, wondering why.

I start with myself - I studied forestry at university of life science, Prague,  after that I moved to (OS)GIS
