I am looking for a free, simple and portable GIS viewer. Any suggestions?
By 'free', I mean gratis long-term, and not some trialware version or a version with 'restricted' functionality (e.g. < 1000 objects).
By 'simple' I mean a very basic, easy-to-use GIS viewer for a non-GIS user, like zooming, panning, identifying, switching on/off layers, etc. It still needs to be able to handle large data files though. Portable versions of ArcMap or QGIS are far too complex.
By 'portable' I mean a viewer that can be:
- installed on a USB memory stick or on a DVD without needing any admin rights or without installing any files (e.g. DLLs) on the PC;
- run from the memory stick or DVD
By 'viewer', I mean a GIS that doesn't allow creating, updating, or deleting the data.
I tried ArcGIS Explorer Desktop but didn't like it.
The whole point is that I can give my clients a memory stick with a GIS and the data on it, and he can just plug and play, and explore the data without having to bother his internal IT department for getting software installed.
