SEXTANTE, gvSIG + 220 routines

sextante (1) As well as GRASS complements Quantum GIS, SEXTANTE does the same with gvSIG, keeping the specialty. These are the best efforts of collaboration between open source alternatives in the geospatial environment, searching to prevent unnecessary duplication.

The gvSIG effort of maintaining vector handling with many CAD capabilities is complemented with everything that has been built in SEXTANTE after its abandon its approach merely raster with SAGA and become a library so many other GIS programs implemented and extend it to the vector approach.
