Open source GIS smackdown

Short Form


We'll run a few of the popular open source GIS software apps through some head to head exercises to see which ones can do what needs to be done.


The smackdown is presented by the local chapter of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo). We will present several of the best apps and show how they stack up against each other as well as comparisons to their commercial counterparts.

Speaking experience

I've given many talks locally and internationally. We presented a similar smackdown a few years ago at Open Source Bridge, and have done a similar presentation at GIS in Action.
