I´m working on a GIS-Project in the Defense & Intelligence sector. The goal was to develop/create a GIS-Service that:
- stores and manage GIS-Data (Map data, Height data.. )
- has a repository for GIS-Data ( for versioning, etc.)
- Synchronization of GIS-Data between Workstation/PC and Tablet (over Network + local with usb sticks/ hdd’s)
GIS Functionalities (Analysis, etc.) as a part of the GIS-service and as a local library accessible from different apps on the Tablet
- C++ / Qt – API
- Placing symbols on the map
So the main goal is to store, manage and share the maps between different apps on tablets, servers, workstations and pc’s.
- Line of Sight
- Terrain analysis
I already compared the most popular OpenSource Gis-Tools but the main issue here is that I have to use C++ and Qt.
I also put a lot of effort into trying to build an standalone application based on QGIS which led to a lot of problems like compiler Errors and other building failures.
So is there a EASY to use OpenSource GIS-Tool for developing a GIS-Application or do I have to spend money on professional GIS-Tools ?
