Valencia migrates three open source GIS tools to OSOR The ministry of infrastructure and transport in Valencia, one of Spain’s autonomous regions, last week began migration of three of its open source Geographic Information Systems (GIS) applications and projects to the European Union’s Open Source Observatory and Repository (OSOR).

The applications, gvSIG Carreteras, gvSIG Sandbox and gsSIG Mobile, are currently hosted on the gvSIG software development site of the ministry in Valencia or on a development website hosted by the Polytechnic University of Valencia.

All three tools are part of the gvSIG suite of GIS tools to manage, analyse and use geographic information. The gvSIG Carreteras for instance, provides tools to manage and analyse road data.

The application, written in Java and published using the GNU General Public License (GPL), helps users to manage cartographic data on roads. The database is designed to be able to handle historic information on roads as well, notes Dolores Arteaga Revert, involved with the gvSIG Carreteras project, in her introduction to the tool.
