From time to time we sit
down and evaluate various products that are sent to us. The GeoCommunity staff sit down and put their years of
experience in the GIS industry to work and test out different products. The results are compiled and offered to you in
the form of a simple product review. Or, if your company has a product review conducted by a third party we'd be glad to have it featured here.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we'd be glad to consider your contribution.
