gvSIG is a tool oriented to manage geographic information. It is characterized by a user-friendly interface, with a quick access to the most usual raster and vector formats. In the same view it includes local as well as remote data through a WMS or WFS source. It is aimed at users of geographic information, whether professionals or civil servants (city councils, councils, regional councils or ministries) from any part of the world ( at the moment its interface is in Spanish, Valencian, English, Basque, Czech , French, German, Italian and Portuguese), in addition to being open source. This open source software project is promoted by Generalitat Valenciana and this adds a great value to it. It is available in binary form both for the Linux and Windows™ platforms, and of course as open source.
