Is there an open source or free alternative to MapInfo?
I know there a free trial, but want something longer than 30 days, and know that Arc has an OS alternative (QGIS)
Open source is open source...QGIS isn't just a free alternative to ArcGIS, it is just a free GIS and it is one of several. You can spend some time searching the web using "FOS gis" for alternatives (free and open source...FOS)
Dan I am aware of that, but QGIS is most similar to ArcGIS in terms of file structure and ease of switching files between the two, was wondering if there was similar to MapInfo.
