How Mapserver works

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. Last time we talk about some criteria of why MapServer and its basic installation. Now let’s look at some of its performance in a mapping exercise from the Chiapas buddies (*). Where it is mounted Once installed Apache, the default publishing directory for

Will PCs die for CAD/GIS users?

With what it has cost us to take out the drawing board from the office… Do technical drawing-men have to return to that position? The issue is being discussed in general terms, and not without reason. I’m sure we’re about to see the PC desktop as the print post office, only for special mailings. This

Developing VBA applications with MicroStation

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. To make applications, Microstation supports different languages, including Microstation Development Language (MDL) which is preferred by the Bentley’s gurus. It also supports old Basic since many years ago and once supported Java, hence that version called Microstation J. But to develop with pleasure

A Look at ArcGIS 10

It has been mentioned that by June of 2010 will be available ArcGIS 10, which as we see will be a significant milestone recognizing ESRI level position in the geospatial field. Already in forums and other places it has been commented a lot, and surely from here to the User Conference in July, we’ll know

GPS Babel, the best to operate data

Of the best links I’ve received as Gabriel’s feedback from Argentina who told us about it, a couple of days ago.

Although the year is young, it seems that future editions will maintain this line, including this time two of the great from the unfree sector: ERDAS and ENVI. If things are as I imagine them, in future editions they will

2 egeomates on the fly and 6 links

Long trip, for three days I have been touring with succulent creoles meals. Finally back, many unread mails and the new 12.2-megapixel Kodak camera going very well. Here I leave some readings and news of interest: Bentley extends interoperability to FME. Very interesting, Bentley Map has integrated the chance of interacting data via ETL from

Geoinformatics, latest edition 2009

This, in my opinion, is one of the better positioned magazines in the geospatial topic, it has closed 2009 with a masterful stamp; in its 7 editions kept a systematic review of free software and surveying equipment, in the latter (model 8, 2009) generalizes significant trends that are taking in the geospatial aspect and the

MapinXL, maps from Excel

MapinXL is an application built by ARTICQUE oriented to office people who are not GIS experts but want to impress with colored maps. We spend our lives trying to connect our maps to Excel, conscious that others can not be away from Microsoft solutions, and we’ve done a thousand ways of solving it, importing data,

uDig, first impression

We’ve already taken a look at other open source tools in the GIS area, including Qgis and gvSIG, apart from non-free programs we’ve tested before. In this case we will do the same with User-Friendly Desktop Internet GIS (uDig), one of those who come in PortableGIS. The place where did it come from uDig is
