NRDB is a free database and mapping application for developing and distributing environmental databases. It was designed to provide people in developing countries with a powerful yet simple tool to assist in the managing of their own resources.

The software should run on most Windows-based computers and requires only standard desktop peripherals such as a scanner and a printer.

It was originally developed for the Bohol Environment Management Office, Philippines by Richard D. Alexander, through the assistance of Voluntary Service Overseas. more details
