gvSIG, the Open Source (GNU/GPL license) Geographic Information System developed by the Generalitat Valenciana reaches its version 1.0. With this release, gvSIG presents itself as an integrated GIS + SDI (Spatial Data Infrastructure) client, able to combine data from different local and remote sources (web services) and at the same time include advanced editing, geoprocessing, scripting language support and georeferencing among other features. All the details about this release, as well as the source code and the binary files, can be found in the project web site www.gvsig.gva.es.
The project is currently funded by the European Union (FEDER funds), which guarantees its continued evolution. Among other pending tasks, a road map of future gvSIG development will be published soon.
gvSIG counts with a large user and developer community registered in the mailing lists, true engines of the project. Through these lists, technical and other support is provided, and they serve as the glue that keeps together the community by practicing the open source philosophy of sharing our knowledge.
We encourage you to suscribe to these lists and to communicate through them all your questions, criticism and suggestions, which make possible that the project stays healthy and growing.
