Ok, so I've wandered into this strange place full of things I don't understand....... My wife however is working on a GIS certificate as part of her degree and I thought the geeks here might have some insight or something..... So.... any of you folx know or work with GIS or is everything here Garmin, or other system overlayered from (presumably) GIS? Anyone have access to GIS software she could use before dropping the $750 :huh for a student coppy? Hints or suggestions for easy projects for practice that have usable applications? She's new enough that when I asked what questions to ask ya'll that she doesn't quite know what the right questions are...... so if you know, speak up Thanks!
