Osnabrück, Germany, 8th of June 2001.
Intevation GmbH, the leading Free Software Company in the area
of geographic information systems published the sixth edition of
its compiliation of Free Software and data for spatial data processing.
For a long time geographic information systems (GIS)
were regarded high-level and cost intensive solutions,

GNU-Systems, like RedHat, Mandrake, Suse and Debian and
significantly lowers the entry barrier towards the world of GIS.

is under full steam. We will continue to bring our clients the best
