As Wikpedia states:

A geographic information system (GIS), geographical information system, or geospatial information system is a system that captures, stores, analyzes, manages and presents data with reference to geographic location data. In the simplest terms, GIS is the merging of cartography, statistical analysis and database technology. GIS may be used in archaeology, geography, cartography, remote sensing, land surveying?, public utility management, natural resource management, precision agriculture, photogrammetry, urban planning, emergency management, GIS in Environmental Contamination, landscape architecture, navigation, aerial video and localized search engines.

A GIS can be thought of as a system - it digitally creates and “manipulates” spatial areas that may be jurisdictional, purpose or application-oriented for which a specific GIS is developed. Hence, a GIS developed for an application, jurisdiction, enterprise or purpose may not be necessarily interoperable or compatible with a GIS that has been developed for some other application, jurisdiction, enterprise, or purpose. What goes beyond a GIS is a spatial data infrastructure (SDI), a concept that has no such restrictive boundaries.

Open source

  • Quantum GIS.
  • Grass GIS.


For further see this list of commercial and open source GIS software and services


  • Allan Brimicombe, CRC Press 2010, GIS, Environmental Modeling and Engineering 2e. With its integrated environmental and GIS I think this book is most suited for the Azimuth project.

  • Gary Sherman 2010 The Pragmatic Programmer Desktop GIS Very good introductory level concerning the GIS part. The first third is getting to know GIS terminology, actions and use desktop software, like Quantum GISS, GRASS GIS and others. There is also a part on how to make plugins and do GIS scripting. For GRASS I think it can be done in almost any language. Quantum GIS has support for C++ and Python officially. I saw an plugin for R from a separate company/person on the Quantum GIS wiki.
