Creating an enterprise GIS using open source technologies is, at times, extremely challenging but the rewards can be substantial. Not only for the obvious cost advantages but for a number of other benefits as well, such as scalability, flexibility and open collaboration. This site is intended to provide a repository of information for consultants and other GIS professionals with regard to OpenSource Enterprise GIS. With the collaboration of the masses perhaps we can build a resource that will help all interested parties understand the nuances of this extremely complex subject.
If you have had exposure to implementing an open source enterprise GIS solution please feel free to contribute to this site. If you are interested in how these myriad technologies come together to form an enterprise GIS solution please feel free to read on. In the end, if we are lucky, we will promote the use of open source in areas were we never thought it would be possible.
