QGIS is my favorite gis application. In the past I used to use ESRI and Mapinfo...but since 3 years ago I moved to QGIS (+GRASS) and I haven't missed anything. Some of the main features:

- Multi-platform: You can run it on Windows, Mac, Lunux and Android.
- Plugins: 100s of plugins for any GIS task
- Fast development
- Very user-friendly
- AND it's free and open source.

We do all sorts of stuff with QGIS and support the development ....so my opinion might be biased. But you can try!!!

Cheers
Sab

QGIS is one of our favorite gis software too.
Data Interoperability, many plugins (reverse geocoding, open layers plugin), raster tools, very user-friendly. :P
That's the reason why we offer QGIS services for our customers. QGIS is great !

Love the QGIS and will be using it lots for added functionality now as our ArcEditor Licence has expired leaving us with ArcView.

Just tried the contours plugin for QGIS however the contours it made were different to the ones made with the same points using ArcEditor. Look kind of similar though, will this be something to do with the algorithms used?

Better ask QGIS mailing list. you probably get a very quick respond from the developer.

I think Arc uses TINs as an intermediate for creating contours, I doubt that QGIS does that.

Yeah and maybe that is dependent on whether you use the 3d analyst or spatial analyst extension!
