Thinking in GIS

The author of this blog is Paolo Corti, and here's a little bit about him in his own words: "I am a GIS fanatic living in the north of Italy. I have been glued (without hope of freedom) to a computer since the early 80's when I have been developing some Zork-like adventure games on my Commodore Vic20/64/Amiga 1000. I landed in GIS in the late 90's, writing some (now museum-worthy) AML code for ARC/INFO and then migrating to ArcObjects and finally to Open Source GIS. I am an environmental engineer and I have worked since 1998 in the GIS field. I am currently working for the JRC, Institute for Environment and Sustainability at the Forest Data and Information Systems unit, and I am actually spending my whole time on great open source techs like Python, Django, GeoDjango, PostGis, MapServer, GDAL and QGIS. I am interested as well in integrating those open source frameworks with proprietary tools (Esri ArcGIS Desktop, ArcIMS, ArcSDE, Oracle, SQL Server), making them interoperable."
