> > Hello Group:

> Hi Robert,
> You may be interested in a paper I had published in the
> SECOND INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON GIS/SPATIAL ANALYSES IN
> FISHERY AND AQUATIC SCIENCES.
> See http://www.esl.co.jp/Sympo/2nd/pdf/contents.pdf which
> lists the paper by Brent Wood on constructing a Fishery GIS
> from free/Open Source components. (This was not formally
> presented at the symposium, but arose from another paper I
> presented, which used OS GIS tools & generated sufficient
> interest to have the second paper written for the proceedings)
> I have also given presentations on standards based GIS, where
> the various functional components of a corporate GIS are
> different (but interoperable) GIS packges. The focus was on
> not buying into proprietary systems, but ensuring that the
> components of a corporate GIS adhered to appropriate standards (eg:
> OGC) so the user could choose the most appropriate package
> for their needs out of the available commercial or Open
> Source offerings to build a customised suite of GIS tools to
> best meet their needs. I guess such a suite could equate to
> an enterprise GIS.
> > I am having trouble finding literature on this topic.
> > Can anybody out there help me locate published studies, reports,
> > presentations, books, conference papers...
My grad thesis was published earlier this year, and is available at
