Subj:   Re: GIS Mapping Software
From:   Shane Hornibrook

Hello List,

As per John Hall's request, I will abstain from recommending a Geographic Information System (GIS). However I would like to note that almost any GIS package can grab data using ODBC. Most GIS's are quite inept at Database Management, so I would assume you would only want to present summary tables in the GIS, and to the important work in Teradata.

No recommendations, but the GIS industry leaders are ESRI (ArcView, ArcInfo, ArcGIS), and MapInfo. Any of them are adequate for mapping. If you are a geek, and you are interested in free, open source Geographic Information System tools you could check out GRASS ( www.cecer.army.mil... ).

If you would like to discuss the relative merits of any particular GIS, feel free to email.
