gvSIG case study

A case study, demonstrating the successful use of open source desktop GIS software gvSIG has recently been made available online on the gvSIG case studies website.

This study discusses how the gvSIG OA Digital Edition was used at Oxford Archaeology for the visualisation, maintenance and analysis of spatial (survey-) data, instead of the proprietary software normally used.
The methodology was documented and published online in the form of a downloadable manual.
Further research was undertaken into the production of high-quality maps from open source GIS, and a second manual was produced.
