[Freegis-list] (off-topic) geoprocessing lists

Hello Mr. Kanegae,

It's not that your question is off-topic, but rather that your question
seeks a solution *directly opposed* to our work. We are working on
trying to solve users needs using *Free* software. You are attempting to
solve needs with software which is non-free. Many of us are simply not
interested in your question because it works against our efforts. 

If you become interested in a longer term or harder question of how to
transition from non-free to free software then please reformulate your
question. If you want to do so, try to explain what your user's needs
are in terms of the whole GIS process from initial data through
processing steps to final data. If their only requirement is "something
that Arc 8 can query", then your final step would be "output to a format
readable by Arc 8" whatever those formats may be. 

Good luck in obtaining the maximum power from your software,
