gvSIG Desktop

Logo gvSIG


gvSIG Desktop is a powerful geographic information system (GIS) designed to offer a free solution to all needs related to geographic information management. It is characterized as a comprehensive, easy to use sollution, it adapts to the needs of any GIS user. Access to the most common formats, both vector and raster, both local and remote is possible. It integrates with OGC standards, and has a large number of tools to work with geographic information (visualization, mapping, geoprocessing, networks, etc.). All this features make gvSIG an ideal tool for users working with the territorial component.

gvSIG is used by a growing international community, in several sectors and applications.

Some of its main features are:

  • Portable: runs on different hardware / software, Linux, Windows and Mac OS. The programming language is Java.

  • Modular: is extensible with new functionality through the development of extensions, allowing a continuous improvement of the software as well as the development of custom solutions.

  • Open Source: under the GNU/GPL license, allowing free use, distribution, study and improvement.

  • Interoperable with solutions already implemented: it can access data from other proprietary programs, including ArcView, AutoCAD or Microstation without data conversion.

  • Multilingual: is available in more than twenty languages (Spanish, English, German, Italian ,...) and allows the addition of new languages easily.

  • Under standards: following the guidelines set by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).


In gvSIG Desktop we can find a wide range of functionalities, integrating several areas of GIS applications:

Vector: Access to vector formats, databases, navigation, query, selection, analysis and geoprocessing, graphic editing and alphanumeric symbology, labeling, cartographic layout, data conversion to other formats and projection systems, relationships between tables, statistics, normalization, ... gvSIG Desktop_vectorial_01_mini
