Free GIS Software

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone know of any Free GIS Software which shows Topography? I just started using the DNR Garmin program and imported the data to Google Earth, which is really impressive. But now I would like to be able to see that same information on a Topo Map. Is that possible? I read some previous reports which made it sound like it was, but all the referenced GIS software wasn't free. Or is there a better way to do what I would like to do?

Thanks

Not to hi jack your thread, but how did you get Dnr maps on a google map?

Have you looked at ESRI's free GIS software, ArcExplorer? I haven't used it in about 5 years, but it used to display GIS layers and do entry-level analysis.

I saved it to my desktop.

Then right click on it and "open with" and select "compressed (zipped) folders".

Then opened the KML doc file while Google Earth was running.

WOW!
