In a couple of weeks we are going to do an episode where we discuss what we think is important in a desktop GIS package and discuss many of the desktop GIS packages that are currently available. This is going to be the first monthly install of a multi-part series. Later we will focus on web mapping, remote sensing packages, object-oriented systems, developement options, etc, but this time we are focusing on stand-alone desktop GIS packages.
If you would like to help, please check out the list of commercial and open source desktop GIS solutions I have started. If you know of a software not on the list yet or if you have experience using some of the less mainstream packages please leave a comment at the bottom of the list page. We hope to discuss this on Feb 4, so please leave comments by then.
Note: If this is your first comment I have to approve it before it shows up on the page. We do this to keep the spam out.
