I am looking to find a faster alternative to ArcReader. I think QGIS might be faster but I was wondering if there was a smaller install without all the GRASS etc for windows. I just want to get a fast map out to my users in the field. The ability to Zoom, Pan, Identify and perhaps search for an address would be nice.
If you install QGIS via osgeo4w instead of via the binary you can select which components and applications are installed.
