Does anyone use version control for (GIS)data and graphics files (Illustrator, Photoshop etc).

 

I have a fair amount of experience using first CVS and SVN, and now git for managing code and smaller files, but it is not really practical for big binary files.

 

I am not thinking backup, I am covered very well there, more for keeping track of revisions (with comments) and easy roll-back/comparison when needed.

 

I was looking a bit at Boar VCS, which seems interesting, and that I am looking into trying out.

 

Do you guys use any version control? Has anyone had any experience with Boar?

James Fee just had a blog post about this http://www.spatially...ersion-control/.

 

I have dabbled with it just a little using ArcSDE (the stripped down version that comes with ArcGIS Advanced). Seemed rather cumbersome to me.

Gretchen Peterson also blogged about using git with QGis: http://www.gretchenp...g/archives/3942

 

But the fact is that git is not very good for huge binary files.
