Software help needed... Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

I am investigating which GIS/RS software to buy. I am interested in making some hydrolgical GIS analysis, will use a DEM and will also process sat. images for making snow cover analysis (MapInfo,ArcGIS, Idrisi....). Any recommendations? Pros and cons?

Dear Friend,
I suggest you head for ArcGIS. Given the point that they are soon to get a very powerful enviornmental modelling language incorporated into it. This tool is very well proven and is something that all of us can look forward to.
However, in terms of the cost factor, I suggest MapInfo, though hydrological modelling capabilities may be poorer in it. A very cheap solution to this end is the combined use of ILWIS (www.itc.nl) and PCRaster (www.pcraster.nl). ILWIS will enable all image processing and GIS while PCRaster is very well proven for hydrological modeling.

Have a look at a product called "Encom Engage3D" from Encom, it is a plugin for MapInfo providing a 3D environment providing support for vector, raster, surface, voxel and text layers from 2D, 3D, tabular or database sources it also has sophisticated data analysis and modelling facilities.
