Open Source GIS systems to be used by Spanish Wine makers

OSOR.eu Wine makers in Spain will soon be able to use the gvSIG open source geographic information services developed in a large part with the help of several of Spain’s public administrations.

The gvSIG association announced on 18 January to start working together with a Spanish provider of commercial GIS services. The two will develop and introduce GIS applications allowing wine makers to use GPS, remote sensing and infrared sensors to monitor their production.

“We will offer the necessary technical support for the open source GIS technology”, gvSIG writes in their statement.

Development of gvSIG began in 2003, with a project by the public Valencia regional administration. The collection of GIS applications is growing fast, with the help of developers in 49 countries, and with the assistance from many national and regional administrations and geographic institutes in Spain and several countries in South America.

The software is being downloaded by users from seventy countries. One of the earlier versions of gvSIG, version 1.1.2, was downloaded 75000 time. Version 1.9 was downloaded some 18000 times more within the first two months after its release, according to a spokesperson of the project.

GvSIG so far has been translated to twenty languages, and it’s being translated to four more. More than a hundred volunteers are involved in this translation effort. Original article.
