Geospatial Technologies Round-up

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.
