After several years of preparations and testing, the Department of Health and Environment of the City of Munich is happy to report that gvSIG 1.11 has now been incorporated into the City of Munich’s standard software portfolio, which means that everyone in the city administration who needs gvSIG on their desktop can have it assigned with an automatic installation procedure and is ready to go! This also means that gvSIG has finally left the confines of the Department of Health and Environment and is taking another step in the process of establishing it as an OGC compliant, Open Source alternative to proprietary software throughout the municipality. In order to support this process further and spread the news, an internal 2-day training course has been developed, targeted at an audience already familiar with GIS concepts and ready to try out a state of the art open source GIS application.

Whitebox GAT Project Welcome to the Whitebox GAT home page The Whitebox GAT project is an exciting new open-source GIS project. Whitbox is as much a philosophical approach to geomatics as it is a GIS/Remote Sensing package. CloudMade Available languages — CloudMade ( formerly provided a platform for software developers to build geo-enabled applications. CloudMad made extensive use of OpenStreetMap data to provide mapping services. CloudMade was founded in 2007 by OSM founder Steve Coast and long-term OSM contributor, Nick Black.

gvSIG info sheet gvSIG is a Geographic Information System (GIS), that is, a desktop application designed for capturing, storing, handling, analyzing and deploying any kind of referenced geographic information in order to solve complex management and planning problems. gvSIG is known for having a user-friendly interface, being able to access the most common formats, both vector and raster ones. It features a wide range of tools for working with geographic-like information (query tools, layout creation, geoprocessing, networks, etc.), which turns gvSIG into the ideal tool for users working in the land realm. gvSIG is known for:

Categorize markers with MarkerClusterer - Google Maps Playground Map Data Map data ©2014 Google, INEGI category: Map Description MarkerClusterer library allows you to control bunch of markers easily. GeoSciML GeoSciML or Geoscience Markup Language is a GML Application Schema that can be used to transfer information about geology, with an emphasis on the "interpreted geology" that is conventionally portrayed on geologic maps. Its feature-type catalogue includes Geologic Unit, Mapped Feature, Earth Material, Geologic Structure, and specializations of these, as well as Borehole and other observational artefacts. It was created by, and is governed by, the Commission for the Management and Application of Geoscience Information (CGI) to support interoperability of information served from Geologic Surveys and other data custodians.
