GIS Software has to be Hard to Use
James Fee

I guess it depends on what you are trying to do.. There are a multitude of scaled-back tools available; again, depending on the particular task and use-case.

Otherwise, I completely agree to your suggestion that the high-end applications are over-tooled and bloated with a lot of nonsense. There is so much task overlap though, and I think that they are simply trying to make it so you don’t have to have 400 applications to accomplish 3 tasks.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
