Thank you for sharing, this looks really interesting... I'm curious which GIS programs you run on your Mac? I haven't had a chance to explore the world of Mac GIS yet.
This discussion covers part of my decision making process and experiences re. Mac and GIS/cartography work.

I wonder what about it requires OS 10.5. I didn't know there was much underlying difference in the code between 10.4 (Tiger) and 10.5 (Leopard).
QuickLook is an OS level feature that was introduced in 10.5. 10.4 doesn't have it, so there is nothing for this plug-in to plug in to in Tiger.
