Comparison of GIS software for surveying

Who would not want to have a table that compares different types of GIS software with features for surveying in order to make a decision on the purchase. Well, such a thing exists in Point of Beginning, including popularized manufacturers such as AutoDesk, ESRI, Mapinfo, Intergraph, as well as equipment manufacturers such as Topcom, Leica and Trimble.

Also included are rare programs in our environment or with a recent history as Surfer and Manifold. To make the comparison, you have to choose the programs you want, and then click on the button "compare models" and the table will be displayed with information under similar criteria.

These are the programs that are included in the comparison:

Topcomputer comparing sokkia topcomA great work the Points of Beginning Here you can see the table. A pity that programs like TopCAD Or Geopak, that insurance have not sent the data to be included.

The magazine, which is possible, is also available for some countries or potential clients. to subscribe And receive it for free.

Unfortunately in the year 2010 the page that developed the comparison stopped operating.
