FalconView is a PC based Mapping Application developed by the Georgia Tech Research Institute for the Department of Defense.
The software is widely used by the US DoD and Allied countries, but historically it has not been available to the general public. Thanks to an initiative by the US Air Force, we have begun releasing a Free and Open Source version of FalconView under the terms of the GNU LGPL license. To get started with the Open Source release see our Feature Matrix, Screen Shots, and Quick Start Guide.
Most Requested Information
2012 FalconView Symposium
The 2012 FalconView Symposium has been cancelled and is postponed indefinitely pending future government authority to travel. We are sorry for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause and we will work with you in cancelling your reservation, etc.
Notice to DoD Personnel
The Department of Defense has not authorized FalconView Open Source to be installed on any DoD computer, and specifically may not be used by any DoD entity for mission planning. DoD (and federal Agencies) should use FalconView® (a GOTS product) as part of the official PFPS suite, released and freely available to all US Federal Agencies and the DoD. PFPS/FalconView Downloads are obtained from individual service desks (see:FrequentlyAskedQuestion), individual service portals, or the PFPS program office.

We are receiving many questions on the new FvOverlay architecture for overlays targeting FalconView 4.2.1 and later. No worries, ILayerEditorX overlay compatibility is being maintained. The FvOverlay architecture is a complete redesign of the overlay programming API. At first glance, it seems complicated, but actually simplifies many tasks and can shorten the development cycle significantly.
