GIS Virtual Machine concept was born in the middle of 2007, based on a personal idea for helping some GIS technicians colleagues to easily enter into the world of Free Open Source Software for GIS.
Since I couldn't find a single Virtual Appliance with GIS software on the Internet, at August's 2008, I've decided to make a simple general purpose Virtual Machine and announce it with a simple site.
GISVM is an Unsponsored project.
It was a success from the first day, 1 September 2008, and has grown immensely until today.
GISVM is now available on three versions:
- GISVM Base
- GISVM Desktop
- GISVM Server
This suite of programs is distributed under the GNU General Public Licence Version 3.
DOWNLOAD AND ENJOY!
Have fun and Freedom,
