    Hi, I only have QuantumGIS at home, is that OK?

  8. Alvaro says:

    Hi Lyse, the course is with gvSIG. But gvSIG is open source and you can download it

  9. ocavusoglu says:

    It says the software can only be used on Windows or Ubuntu platforms but I found this link where one can download a Mac version – can this be used during the course?
    Thank you.

  10. Dear ocavusoglu, course will carried out based on Windows version of gvSIG 2.1 but you can use as well the 1.11 Mac version. Maybe not all the tools will be immediately available but an official updated version for Mac will be shortly released. Keep in touch, Giuliano.

    How does it works? I mean, do we have to attend the course at a fixed time, or can we do it when it best fits us?

  12. Chizoba says:

    Hi, tried enrolling but is having challenges with this ID stuff. So what is required of me.

  13. ojaybee says:

    The sign up for this is testing. That could influence first impressions. If you follow the link above in an earlier comment you can find the elusive “Enroll” button. Following that you need an account with gvSIG. There is a section in the sign up for that account that requires a National ID number (presumably for Spain) in the “Otros campos” section. I just filled in a bunch of irrelavent numbers. Then you get your email confirmation. Then you login. Then you enroll. Simples.
