…When we consider online web GIS, what options do we have?…When I talk about GIS on the web, I mean literally having the capacity to…do mapping and some analysis in an interactive internet environment.…There has been a growing community interested in developing free…GIS software that you can download to your computer.…For example, GRASS is a downloadable GIS that you…can install from Baylor University.…Another popular visualization tool is Quantum GIS.…
