Jo Cook has announced that the first release of Portable GIS is now available for downloading. Portable GIS is a suite of open source GIS applications and supporting tool-kits that can be run off of a memory stick including GRASS, PostgresSQL and open source web mapping software. This concept was presented at FOSS4G2007 in a talk entitled “Portable GIS: GIS on a USB Stick” (PDF). The concept is still being tweaked out and shouldn’t be used for production GIS. Portable GIS currently only runs on Windows.
