Desktop GIS Stefan Steiniger: Aug-2007: subjective evaluation Version: 03. March. 2008 (small changes) The table(s) should be published in forthcoming journal article which I have started to work on for a research article, because it bothers me, that current GIS research is hardly aware of the existing systems.

Technical Collaboration What is GeoSciML GeoSciML is an XML–based data transfer standard for the exchange of digital geoscientific information. It accommodates the representation and description of features typically found on geological maps, as well as being extensible to other geoscience data such as drilling, sampling, and analytical data.
QGIS v MapInfo observations mick bareman at tpg.com.au Fri Mar 2 00:49:20 GMT 2012 I have been using MapInfo since about 1995 and QGIS for the last year or so and have noticed some real differences in usability that I would like to share. My current project is a map of Roman Britain using data from Ordinance Survey Open Data, OpenStreetMap, English Heritage and various books and other historic maps I have found on line. The hardware I'm using is a homebrew i5 2500 cpu, 16GB RAM and a pair of average 500GB SATA drives. I'm using MapInfo v7.8 (with no additional packages) in wine on Ubuntu 11.10 (last version that I could get working in wine) and currently QGIS 1.7.4 Differences I've noticed: Georeferencing - QGIS wins hands down, it is not easy but I manage, whereas MapInfo's I can rarely get started and crash it before I get anything done.
NetLogo Home Page NetLogo is a multi-agent programmable modeling environment. It is used by tens of thousands of students, teachers and researchers worldwide. It also powers HubNet participatory simulations. It is authored by Uri Wilensky and developed at the CCL. Development and Comparison of Open Source based Web GIS Frameworks on WAMP and Apache Tomcat Web Servers The generic layered architecture of Web GIS consists of three layers namely user interface layer, application layer and database layer. The clients access the system by interacting with the user interface layers that takes the input and shows the output of the system. It involves graphical user interface therefore it must be designed cautiously so that the user can understand it easily. The application layer provides the map visualization functions like panning, zooming etc.
