  • gvSIG Desktop

    Free Mac Windows Linux Website

    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:

    integrating in the same view both local and remote data through OGC standards.
    being designed to be easily extendable, allowing continous application enhancement, as well as enabling the development of tailor-made solutions.
    being open source software, under GNU/GPL license, which allows its free use, distribution, study and improvement.
    being available in several languages (Spanish, English, German, French, Italian,...)
    being developed using Java, and being available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X platforms


    Typical tools in a full-fledged desktop GIS client can also be found in gvSIG, among other things:

    Access to vector formats: SHP, DXF, GML, DWG, DGN,...
    Access to raster formats: JPG2000, MrSID, Ecw, Erdas, Envi,..
    Access to remote services: OGC (WMS, WFS, WFS-T, WCS), ArcIMS, Ecwp
