Hi all

Just wondering, I have a list of free gis software
http://gsociology.icaap.org/methods/soft.html
maybe halfway down the page.

I tried a couple, and found them pretty difficult. Are there any free gis programs that are relatively easy to use? If for example, I just wanted to make a simple map? In my case, I work with global data, like infant mortality rate (IMR), so I would want to make a map of the world, showing countries with high IMR and countries with low IRM.

I'd be interested in fairly easy to learn and use programs. I also want to list programs on my website that are fairly easy to learn, that can be used by people without a ton of training in gis, but who are willing to invest some time.

Thanks

Gene
