which GIS??

  1. The more you look the more you realise you don't have a clue what you're looking for....
    Think I may have narrowed down options to:
    - AEGIS
    - some ESRI derivitive
    - Google Earth Pro
    Anyone got any evaluations? Effectively want to be able to network the software easily, use with our own data but easily access base maps. Cost is a little bit of an issue. From what I can see only AEGIS is one-off fee?
    Any ideas would be much appreciated!

  3. Hey Chris - thanks for the advice! QGIS has been suggested to me by a couple of other people also though I'm a little concerned that sourcing data and shapefiles etc is user intensive? going for a school-orientated package might reduce this workload. The pay-off would be a less rigorous platform perhaps.
     
  4. Ah, yea, that's a good point - you're right!

    Just another couple of ideas - 'ArcGIS Explorer' (a small, light-weight downloadable GIS application) or 'ArcGIS Online' (an online, simple GIS application) might be useful! The advantage of the latter particularly is the ability to add in several pre-created ESRI base maps and data!

    Regards, Chris
     
  5. haha feel free - good luck!
