From Oxford Archaeology’s many efforts in open-source archaeology and mapping, a few links:
- A manual on how to import PDF/SVG files generated by Quantum GIS into the free vector editing/illustration program Inkscape
- An Open Source Survey and GIS Manual for doing mapping with GPS and Total Stations; oriented towards archaeological site mapping, but potentially useful for other applications
- The Open Archaeology Suite, open-source software being developed for archaeological data recording, mapping and analysis, but also potentially adaptable for other applications. Some apps (like the Portable GIS suite, and Crossbones software) are already available, while others are still in development.
- And I’ve posted about their polished-up version of gvSIG 1.10 before; this includes a version for Mac, which even the main gvSIG site doesn’t have available yet.
thank you for sharing this! I linked it up on our Archeology group for land surveyors: http://landsurveyorsunited.com/group/archeology/forum/topics/archeology-oxford-and-gis Stop by sometime and check us out…as always thanks for the terrific tips!
