    Quantum GIS (Powerful Free GIS Software)

    About QGIS and Its Features

    Quantum GIS (QGIS) is a powerful and user friendly Open Source Geographic Information System (GIS) that runs on Linux, Unix, Mac OSX, and Windows. QGIS supports vector, raster, and database formats. QGIS is licensed under the GNU Public License.


    The QGIS project offers different applications for your use cases:

    * [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - The classic QGIS desktop application offers many GIS functions for data viewing, editing, and analysis.
    * [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - A fast and easy data viewer for your local, network and online (WMS) data.
    * [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - A standard-compliant WMS 1.3 server that can be easily configured using QGIS Desktop project files.
    * [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - A web front-end for your web mapping needs based on OpenLayers and GeoExt.

    QGIS Desktop

    The major features include:
    1. Direct viewing of vector and raster data in different formats and projections. Supported formats include:
    * PostGIS and SpatiaLite,
    * most vector formats supported by the OGR library, including ESRI shapefiles, MapInfo, SDTS and GML.
    * raster formats supported by the GDAL library*, such as digital elevation models, aerial photography or landsat imagery,
    * GRASS locations and mapsets, online spatial data served as OGC-compliant WMS , WMS-C (Tile cache), WFS and WFS-T
    2. Mapping and interactive exploration of spatial data. Tools include:
    * on-the-fly reprojection
    * print composer
    * overview panel
    * spatial bookmarks
    * identify/select features
    * edit/view/search attributes
    * feature labeling
    * vector diagram overlay
    * advanced vector and raster symbology
    * graticule layer
    * map decorations like north arrow, scale bar and copyright label
    3. Create, edit and export spatial data using:
    * digitizing tools for vector features
    * field and raster calculator
    * the georeferencer plugin
    * GPS tools to import and export GPX format, convert other GPS formats to GPX, or down/upload directly to a GPS unit
    4. Perform spatial analysis, including:
    * map algebra
    * terrain analysis
    * hydrologic modeling
    * network analysis
    * and many others
    5. Publish your map on the internet using QGIS Server or the "Export to Mapfile" capability (requires UMN MapServer)
    6. Adapt QGIS to your needs through the extensible plugin architecture.

    QGIS Browser

    QGIS Browser is a simple and fast data viewer. It allows the user to explore attribute and meta data of local and online source.

    QGIS Server

    QGIS Server currently offers WMS 1.3.0 and 1.1.1 implementation. Features include:

    * Enhanced WMS (Web Map Service) via HTTP GET. Supports GetCapabilities, GetMap, GetStyle, GetFeatureInfo and custom styling with Styled
    * Layer Descriptor (Supported standards: WMS 1.3.0, WMS 1.1.1, and SLD 1.0.0).
    * SOAP via HTTP POST. Compatible with the ORCHESTRA and SANY Service Oriented Architecture.
    * Native configuration with SLD. User friendly map symbolisation using QGIS Desktop.
    * Cartographic extensions to SLD (diagrams, patterns and custom symbols with Scalable Vector Graphics). Exchange of cartographic rules with the GetStyle operation.

    The QGIS mapserver is a FastCGI/CGI application written in C++. It works together with a webserver (Apache in most cases) invoking the FastCGI application. It uses QGIS as backend for the GIS logic and for map rendering.
    Supported plattforms include Linux, Windows XP (only CGI at the moment) and MacOSX. Other Unixes possible, but not tested.

    Hi, for somehow I did not get the Project files (*.qgs) also not in dataset (Alaska etc)..
    Q1: Are the qgs (QGS) files automatically provided in the program? (not in my case)
    Q2: If not can some one supply them or give a link?
    Thanks in advance

    hi peter
    build up your project with existing data or new data that you've created (eg shapefiles) and you can save the entire things as a project
