Install on Windows

You must have administrative privileges to install GeoFIS on your computer.

GeoFIS needs the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed (version 1.8 or greater).
To check if Java is already installed, type java -version into the Windows “Command Prompt”.
If Java is not installed, download and install Oracle Java from

Since April 2019, Oracle has stopped public support of Java 8 for professional, commercial or production purposes.
If you prefer to use a free open-source implementation of Java, you can install an OpenJDK version of Java: Eclipse Adoptium OpenJDK, Azul Zulu Builds of OpenJDK or Java Development Kit builds, from Oracle.
Prefer an LTS (Long Term Support) version of OpenJDK: 8, 11 or 17.
Follow these instructions to run GeoFIS on JDK >= 16.
The development version of GeoFIS supports the use of ‘JAVA_HOME’ or ‘PATH’ environment variables to launch the installed Java Runtime Environment.

Some GeoFIS operations needs the R software (version >= 3.6) to be installed for working.
We recommend to use the latest available R software for Windows, some R packages used by GeoFIS are not available (or have bugs) with older version of R.
The installation of R software will be proposed at the end of the GeoFIS installation wizard.

Download the installation wizard: and follow instructions to install GeoFIS.

Because the GeoFIS executables are not signed, Windows or your antivirus software will probably prevent you from executing the installer or the program itself. You can click “Run anyway” to install/run the program.

Training datasets are available in folder “C:\ProgramData\GeoFIS\data”.

You can check GeoFIS update availability from the Help menu (?) of the GeoFIS application.
