Open Source GIS software has proven to be reliable, fast, and cartographically pleasing on the WWW, however it has traditionally lagged behind commercial systems on the desktop.
In this session we will highlight the capabilities of some of the leading, most feature-rich, desktop applications in the open source ecosystem. Each presenter will demonstrate a specific set of tasks from cartography to analysis in a specific software platform. The programs featured are: Quantum GIS, gvSig, OpenJump, and MapWindow.
