New Class - Introduction to gvSIG Open Source Desktop GIS

gvSIG LogoTerra GIS is offering a 2 day introductory class/hands on workshop in Seattle on Tuesday November 16th and Wednesday November 17th, 2010 at the King County GIS Center’s Seattle Computer Training Facility. gvSIG is a powerful desktop GIS system that 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 information (query tools, layout creation, geoprocessing, networks, model builder, etc.) and provides excellent cartography and spatial analysis tools, and a wide range of spatial database connectivity.

Open Source Desktop GIS Workshop at WAURISA 2010

TerraGIS will be presenting a half day “pre-conference” workshop  on April 19th 2010 at the WAURISA 2010 conference. This years slogan is “rise to the challenge”. The conference is held from April 19th-21th, 2010 in the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center , 1500 Broadway, Tacoma, Washington, USA.

gvSIG start screenThis time I will be talking about “Open Source Tools for Spatial Analysis and Geoprocessing on the Desktop“. A general introduction and overview about the tools covered in this workshop will be followed by examples illustrating the use of desktop utilities based on the OGR/GDAL2 libraries, PostGIS (“the” open source spatial database) and gvSIG (a desktop GIS) for spatial analysis and geoprocessing. During the workshop participants can use a live DVD with their own laptop to go along with some of the exercises. Continue reading”Open Source Desktop GIS Workshop at WAURISA 2010″ »

New Class - Interoperable Web GIS Solutions with Open Source

Terra GIS is offering this 3 day class/hands on workshop in Seattle from December 3rd through Friday December 5th, 2008.  Interoperable Web GIS Solutions built on Free and Open Source Geospatial software (FOSS4G) offer very effective means of delivering reliable, modern, standard compliant and flexible solutions. They can be used as stand alone applications or in conjunction with proprietary systems. Especially over the last years FOSS4G have become a viable alternative to proprietary software, and implementing GIS with FOSS helps to meet budget challenges as is outlined in this NASA study: Geospatial Interoperability Return on Investment Study

The main topics of the class/hands on workshop are as follows: Continue reading”New Class - Interoperable Web GIS Solutions with Open Source” »
