Geographical information systems (GIS) on VRDC?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

If you have interest in geographical information systems on the VRDC, please read on. There are several GIS systems available for Linux. Not all of them are available for 64bit Linux (yet). I have noticed

  1. GRASS, a multi-platform, open-source GIS system
  2. Quantum GIS, a GUI and interface to GRASS
  3. Link between R and GRASS

Note that it is part of the NSF grant financing the VRDC to support the porting of such applications to 64bit Linux in the RDC environment.

If you are interested in using the VRDC for either analysis or development work, please send an email to the VRDC administrators
