Portable GIS

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.
