Open Source GIS: OSGEO.ORG

Learned about new open source GIS software for map making from an IT writer at my newspaper today. Quite exciting for me since geography is essential to get a handle on the history of Burma-Yunnan-Bay of Bengal (c. 1350-1600).

1. OSGEO.ORG is offering the open source GIS software.

2. Here is the GIS blog Between the Poles of Geoff Zeiss who works for Autodesk working on the project somehow.

3. Also found this open source GIS resource list.

Anyway, one these days, soon, supporting written history with maps will be a lot easier.
