After several years of preparations and testing, the Department of Health and Environment of the City of Munich is happy to report that gvSIG 1.11 has now been incorporated into the City of Munich’s standard software portfolio, which means that everyone in the city administration who needs gvSIG on their desktop
can have it assigned with an automatic installation procedure and is ready to go! This also means that gvSIG has finally left the confines of the Department of Health and Environment and is taking another step in the process of establishing it as an OGC compliant, Open Source alternative to proprietary software throughout the municipality.
In order to support this process further and spread the news, an internal 2-day training course has been developed, targeted at an audience already familiar with GIS concepts and ready to try out a state of the art open source GIS application. A first course will take place this fall, with more to come early next year.
