The development of community forest in Indonesia should be improved. In reality, community forest can supply raw material to wood industry and repair damage of local ecology. Therefore there is an effort to develop system of estimating community forest potency with web based map, to make things easy for user.Estimation of this potency through mensurement of stem diameter able to deputize by crown wide at QuickBird image. This image can present data with high resolution until 61 cm. The high resolution enables forester to inventor of land use,to estimate of wood potency, determining wood transportation, evaluating of deforestasi and make site plan. Calculating of this community forest potency is done on the bases of percil. The final result is a webgis application. This application using mapserver and PostgreSQL. MapServer is an Open Source development environment for constructing spatially enabled Internet-Web applications, and PostgreSQL is an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS) developed at the University of California at Berkeley Computer Science Department. Webmap application gives one easy step to access informations about community forest everywhere and everytime. It is a nice solution for consumer and community forest companies.
