Serve Your Software to the Public
Sounds too good to be true? We're very serious!
Send us your quality GIS/CAD related software
and we will add it to the GeoCommunity software download catalog. Once your product is catalogued
simply link the page on your site and direct interested parties to that location. This is an excellent way to
serve up custom scripts, extensions, product demos, evaluation copies, freeware, or shareware to a very large, and
targetted group of individuals.
Once software is added to the GeoCommunity, it will be available worldwide for download free of charge.
In addition, for those individuals who may not have the Internet bandwidth or the time to download
large files, the GeoCommunity provides an automated mechanism (patent pending) for creating custom
CDs, which may include the software you provide bundled with other useful datasets. For the CD
write service, the GeoCommunity will charge a nominal write fee intended to cover the associated
production and distribution costs.
How to Participate in the Geocommunity Software Serving
In order to serve software within the GeoCommunity:
1. EMAIL us at firstname.lastname@example.org
describing the product you wish to provide to the public.
2. COMPRESS the software that you wish to provide to the public using either
gzip for unix based data or WinZip for Windows based data. Please do not use the
self-extracting *.exe format for PC data.
3. METADATA - Prepare and provide documentation or readme file to be included
within each and every catalog item. The inclusion of a readme will ensure that users of your
software are informed and can reach you for comments.
