When writing a research paper or an article that contains references to GIS data, maps, or other geospatial material, it’s important to include a proper citation crediting the author of the GIS work.

How to Cite GIS Materials

Citations vary depending on if the map is a single piece of work, part of a map series, an atlas, or a map that is part of a book or a journal article. There are even specific citations if the map was created using GIS software or you are citing GIS data. There are varying citation guidelines for static web maps versus dynamic online mapping applications. For each map, first consult the original work in order to extract the necessary information. Scan the map for the necessary information. Unlike most books and journal articles, the map or GIS data being cited may not contain all the needed information for a full citation.

Always check the map first for source information about the map’s author (1), title (2), scale (3), and publication location and publisher (4). Generic Mapping Tools. GDAL: GDAL - Geospatial Data Abstraction Library. Intelligently degrade or smooth GIS data. Geotools 8.0 Released. The Geotools community is pleased to announce the availability of Geotools 8.0 for download on sourceforge.

Geotools 8.0 Released

If you are using Maven, this release is deployed to our OSGeo Maven Repository: For more information on setting up your project with Maven, see the Quickstart (included in the user guide documentation pack above). Geotools 8.0 is a stable release made in conjunction with GeoServer 2.2-RC2 and GeoWebCache 1.3-RC4. Currently there are no additional updates to 2.7.x planned. Geotools 8.0 comes feature packed compared to its 2.7.x releases. More information can be found by checking out the proposals made for this release here. For those migrating from GeoTools 2.7, additional instructions are available here. We would like to take the opportunity to thank all the developers, users and contributor that have helped to make this release possible. Enjoy, The GeoTools Community. Zonums Software Tools.

Free GIS data download Coordinate system transformation of value pairs (TXT, CSV, XLS) on-line (cs2cs) Sponsors MyGeodata Converter allows you to read and write from/to a huge number of CAD and GIS formats - both vector and raster. FREE ArcView Shapefile Editor. Shp2kml 2. MapShaper shapefile editor. OSM2PostGIS. Osm2pgsql. Available languages — osm2pgsql is a command-line based program that converts OpenStreetMap data to postGIS-enabled PostgreSQL databases.


Such databases are often used to render OSM data visually using Mapnik, as PostgreSQL is one of the most efficient and flexible formats Mapnik can use for querying large amounts of data. For more information on using osm2pgsql to render OpenStreetMap data with Mapnik, see the Mapnik page. Its homepage is: It currently does not have a sole maintainer but is maintained by a community of contributors and Osm2pgsql does not a designate 'stable' or 'development' versions but most recent builds should be able to be used in a production environment.

Until April 2013, it was hosted on svn. It is highly recommended to use a version released since Sept. 2, 2012, which has support for 64-bit_Identifiers. According to "User documentation is stored in docs/. OS Support osm2pgsql is available for Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. Installation From source Fedora openSUSE Usage.

Free Development software downloads. Mapnik. Available languages — Mapnik is an open source toolkit for rendering maps.


Among other things, it is used to render the five main Slippy Map layers on the OpenStreetMap website. It supports a variety of geospatial data formats and provides flexible styling options for designing many different kinds of maps. Mapnik is written in C++ and can be scripted using binding languages such as JavaScript (Node.js), Python, Ruby, and Java. Osm2postgresql. To simplify rendering with QGIS and other GIS/web servers, this script sets up a PostgreSQL / PostGIS server or database, imports OSM data into it, process those data (including multi-polygons with holes) and proposes a classification.


This project is different from the following projects: (although they have a few common goals, hence the related names). It is available at Features Optional: installs a postgres server and configure it; create a database (with postgis and hstore) Loads OSM data into the database and process it Creates and fix polygons based on ways and relations Fixes small streams, canals... on riverbanks (nicer rendering) Creates 3 tables that are ready for rendering: polygons, ways, nodes_with_tags In each table (nodes_with_tags, ways, polygons), populates a "class" field that you can link to your symbology Helps you easily render OSM data in your GIS application or web server Keeps ALL tags (in two fields: 'tags' as text and 'tagshstore' as hstore) Simple usage.
