Google up ‘Open source GIS’, and you’ll find OPENSOURCEGIS.org, and then you’ll see about 200 different entries of tools, projects and platforms listed there. A pretty impressive show of activity !
Lets discuss some of the major ones (PostGreSQL, QGIS, MapServer…) Bring along examples of things you’ve done using Open Source tools. Use the link below to send any specifics YOU’d like to see or present – and we’ll include them.
(I’m a long time tech guy from the USC School of Medicine, am enrolled in a graduate GIS program where I’m entrenched in the ‘ESRI’ world of software, and trying to translate and discover effective and alternate solutions in the world of Open Source)
