Muy buen programa para el rtabajo con archivos shape. Lo uso en mi trabajo para elaborar productos cartograficos
QGIS keeps getting better. It does just about everything ESRI can do. Its unfortunate that using it with SDE is so tricky though. I try to use qgis for what it does best, which is basic viewing and analysis. Plugins are hit or miss but the basic stuff like ftools and gdal tools work ok for the most part. like every other GIS software out there, it works well for some things but is unstable in many other ways.
An extensive GIS suit for free, you can do everything in it!
Great GIS software, expandable and compatible with GRASS, SAGA and other scientific GIS tools (so it's not only for intermediate level, but it's great for advanced GIS analysis if the user configures it well). Lighter and faster than ESRI's ArcGIS, also has Python integration. Has a lot of add-ons/plugins. Beautiful Qt GUI.
Full functioning GIS that I use at the professional level. QGIS is also availble through Boundless - OpenGeo Suite as part of a professional suite for a fee.
This is a good tool for GIS work at intermediate level.
