gvSIG is known for having a user-friendly interface, being able to access the most common formats, both vector and raster ones. It features a wide range of tools for working with geographic-like information (query tools, layout creation, geoprocessing, networks, etc.), which turns gvSIG into the ideal tool for users working in the land realm.

gvSIG is known for:

integrating in the same view both local and remote data through OGC standards.

being designed to be easily extendable, allowing continous application enhancement, as well as enabling the development of tailor-made solutions.
