I think we should create a list of best desktop GIS FOSS case studies. First of all this list will be useful to anyone who considers desktop GIS FOSS for a project as an viable alternative.

    I guess this should be community wiki?

  • When you're asking a question where the collection of answers is the answer (here, all the various case studies) you should make it community wiki. Each case study should get its own answer, and then people can vote them up or down based on how interesting/useful that particular study is. Aug 13, 2010 at 15:21

In this GRASS applications list, several case studies are linked.


OSGeo is offering the gallery: http://gallery.osgeo.org/ which links to several use cases.
