Your question is ontopic as far as I can see.

There are many Free Software solutions for this.
www.freegis.org has them, but it might take some knowledge
to get them assembled. (This would not be different from proprietary
Note that you asked for a pure GNU solutions.
To be very precise only software belonging to the GNU project,
are purely GNU. The GNU project contains many key component
of Free Software systems, but it is not possibible to build
software purely from GNU components. Common GNU/Linux operating
systems for instance contain Linux and X11.
It is possible to build operatings systems with applications
that only run Free Software!
Most applications listed on www.freegis.org
are not part of the GNU project, but all of them are Free Software.

You are comparing Free Software solutions with proprietary solutions.
There are many commercial Free Software solutions to your problem.
You can look for a company or try to get going to build
the system yourself.
