Import data from OpenStreetMap to QGIS

The amount of data that exist in OpenStreetMap is really wide, and although it is not completely up to date, in the majority of cases it is more accurate than data traditionally raised by cartographic sheets with scale 1: 50, 000. In QGIS is great to load this layer as a background map such as […]

OpenGeo Suite: A GIS Software great example, thought upon the OSGeo model’s weaknesses

To this day, at least in the geospatial environment, any professional with neutral thinking recognizes that open source software is as mature as commercial software, and in some ways superior to it. The standards strategy worked very wisely. While it is questionable its balance update against the required energy for technological developments, perhaps was what […]

The free GIS book

It is perhaps one of the most valuable systematization products of Spanish -speaking environment under geospatial thematic. Not having this document at hand is a crime, as well as ignores this project before reading this Geomate’s article.

Comparative of booting with CAD/GIS programs

This is an exercise in equal conditions, to measure the time it takes to boot a program since the click on the icon until it is running. For comparison purposes, I used the one that starts in less time, and then a value that acts as an indication (rounded) of the times the quantity is […]

gvSIG: The hazards of this and other trades

The way free tools have matured is interesting, some years ago, talking about free GIS, sounded like UNIX, in a geek voice and with a level of distrust or fear of the unknown. All that has changed much with the diversity of solutions that have full-grown not only in the construction of routines commonly expected […]

Quantum GIS, first impression

If gvSIG friends fulfilled their promise, next Monday July 27th we will have the 1.9 stable version. So far the test has been great, according to the perceived volume of distribution lists.

GIS software – described in 1000 words

The recent month of May, it was released version 1.2 of this brief but admirable document that with that name seems to scoff at how complicated it is the software for managing spatial data. It is written by Stefan Steiniger and Robert Weibel of Calgary University in California and Zurich University respectively. At the end […]
