G-Tek Solutions to promote GIS literacy

                                                                    Free software for universities and colleges.

Tampa, FL, — May 19, 2009 — G-Tek Solutions, a start up software provider specializing in Windows based stand alone GIS software, will offer 4MAT2KML-P Professional ver 09.r.1 to universities and colleges for free.

The academic version will be available for colleges and universities to help promote GIS literacy by allowing students to view existing shapefiles and geodatabases through KML files.

G-Tek Solutions would like to provide alternatives to universities and colleges during these tough economic times, noting that some institutions may not have the financial resources to purchase expensive GIS software for all their desktop computer. 4MAT2KML-P could be used to help reduce the cost of achieving geographic literacy by eliminating the cost of acquiring aerial photography or additional GIS software while also reducing the cost and development of deploying GIS servers.

With this powerful application, administrators and teachers would be able to share their geographic data (shapefiles & geodatabases) with non-GIS users and promote understanding of geographic principals such as spatial relationships, analysis, projections and datums.
