"Magnificent to perform spatial analysis and generate cartographic products."

What do you like best?

Easy to install and use. It works on any operating system (Windows, Linux or Mac). There is a version for phones with andriod.

Access to online digital cartography to perform data maintenance (update, modify, delete and add). The standard format (shp) is used by all the GIS programs, which allows the integration of the data generated with other platforms.

It allows me to generate an accurate cartography with information based on points.

It allows the incorporation of decision making at the managerial level.

What do you dislike?

The options for changing the layout of fields in the tables are somewhat limited

You can not do the digital processing of the images.

It does not contain a lot of symbology for the creation of thematic maps.

It is very complicated to perform the coordinate grid.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With the vector-raster integration we can visualize the place of study and make the right decisions.

With the creation of thematic maps we can carry out studies of specific areas.

"The best of free software in Geographical Information Systems"

What do you like best?

What I like most about this software is that it works with different vectorial formats, raster and image formats; In addition to having good and advanced tools of spatial analysis.

What do you dislike?

What I like least about this software is the part of the toponymy or labeling of the vector information, because it often does not fit the scale of presentation. Another new feature is the part of the layout, which I do not consider very friendly when printing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software can be installed with any operating system; besides being a very simple program to use if you are a user with knowledge of Geographical Information Systems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software has allowed me to georeference a lot of geographic information.

What GIS solution do you use?
