What is QGIS?

QGIS (QGIS) is an open source, community driven Geographic Information System (GIS) that runs on Linux, Windows and MacOS.
The desktop GIS offers organisations a real alternative or supplement to otherwise expensive vendor based licencing.
QGIS is a fully functioning desktop GIS and includes all the features that spatial professionals and general users would expect such as importing data from multiple sources, digitising, editing, on the fly reprojection, data analysis, geoprocessing, database connectivity and raster processing. The highly capable print layout functionality is intuitive and easy for new users to create professional looking maps.
Delivering comprehensive functionality, ease of use and a collaborative user community, QGIS is the ideal solution to address all your desktop GIS requirements.
More information about QGIS can be found at the website www.qgis.org or contact DMS to talk to us about using the application in your organisation.


QGIS has no associated licensing costs as it is licensed under the GNU General Public License. QGIS is an official project of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo).
