“The real advantage of using a GIS is when you want to work with topography or
produce topography-derived datasets such as slope, aspect, hill shade models
or stream networks. These datasets can still be produced on a smaller site,
but in many cases, the available free data are too coarse to produce good
topography and more detailed survey data are needed. One free GIS package
I use is Quantum GIS, and for a relatively low-cost commercial GIS, I like
Global Mapper. Of course, Google Earth is a great free tool, especially for
visualizing your parcel of land in the greater landscape.” AL
