QGIS, the go to open source choice for desktop GIS software, have announced that QGIS 3.0 Girona is now available for download.
This is a major update and includes a plethora of new features and feature upgrades, including 3D GIS functionality.
QGIS software is free of charge to use and has a huge global community of contributors and funding sponsors. QGIS provides a robust alternative to other GIS software providers such as ESRI.
The two major features that (unsurprisingly) excite us the most are:
- 3D map view and terrain generation
- 3D Renderers for map layers
Over the coming weeks and month’s we will be using these new features to add value to our GIS projects and continue to offer amazing, innovative services to our clients and partners.
If you would like to learn more about QGIS and how it can aid your projects, then please feel free to contact The Carto Group and we will be more than happy to give advice or provide GIS services.
