Simple in name but a powerful fully functional GIS software. Expected less received more.

Pros: An affordable full-featured GIS software. Opens quickly. Links to OLE DB - ODBC databases for live linked point layers. Easy creation of features to Shapefile layers, can simply change back and forth from several active editing layers. Great GPS and tracking support. Works well on small tablets in the field. Reads a wide variety of data sources. Support from the developer is great; bugs are taken care of immediately, and new features carefully considered.

Cons: A few display issues, high DPI display problems, on super high resolution display, although on most devices it works fine. Map views are not as crisp as they could be, but on the positive side, icons and dialog text are well sized on a variety of display resolutions (can even use with touch on a tablet just fine). Would like a few new features; Export Map View to georeferenced (world header file) image, Bookmarked views/zooms, Toggle Layer edit on TOC right click menu.

Overall: Provides are great affordable GIS software for all users, field and office.

Thanks Mike. Just an update,, Simple GIS Client has been made dpi aware at version 9.2. So this should take care of any high DPI display issues.

Thanks again.

Tremendous set of tools not offered elsewhere, especially for the price!

Pros: I've been involved in using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) software since 1983 with Atlas Graphics. I've used a bunch of systems since then but mostly use the free QGIS, SAGA, and a few other specialized programs. I ran across a new commercial package that has both a desktop client package for Windows as well as a server version.

I've never seen one with as many wizards that automate bread and butter tools like a geocoder, an image downloader, a Census downloaded/data builder, etc. plus, it comes with a FREE national geocoder database even though it's wizard will automatically download TIGER or OSM data and build a geocoding database for you. The company pledges to update their free geocoder database each year.

I've been corresponding with the company on improvements and they have already made some tweaks to improve the code, some a day later..and on the weekend. Highly recommended.

Cons: Some development work, now in progress, on the Geocoder is needed. A x64 version could improve larger memory usage for power users.

Everything about the software has been awesome, especially the incredible support.

Pros: The value for the money, and the support (including customized help on how to do specific GIS things in the software as well as the offer to write VBA scripts as needed

Cons: The overall interface seems a bit non standard, that is the 4 ease of use rating. It doesn't feel like a modern Windows program, not sure why that is. But it really isn't that big of deal considering all the positives and the incredible value for the money

Overall: Just one of the best price-value pieces of software I have found. I work in agriculture, and while we have ag-specific GIS tools with specific functionality for our industry, it's great to have a low cost, full featured GIS package for the random other stuff we do. And because we are sometimes doing the same operation across large numbers of files, I look forward to taking advantage of the automation abilities that the package offers as well.

Great intuitive product developed by a responsive software wizard. Thanks for allowing me to go GIS

Pros: Intuitive layout and interactive feel. Moving between, and editing, layers is easy. Working with projections is simple and far less complicated (to me anyway) than other programs.

Cons: Labelling is a bit less intuitive than I would like. Label offsets are a bit cryptic and irregular when data points are close together.

Well designed, intuitive interface leading to a short learning curve with useful GIS capabilities.

Pros: Simple GIS gives one the ability to quickly conduct spatial analysis for a very reasonable expenditure of time and money. The software has most of the capabilities typically needed and it works with data saved in most of the standard GIS formats (e.g., shp, tif, etc). The map function is advanced.

Cons: Some capabilities I would like to use are not yet supported by Simple GIS the program is under continuous development.

Overall: I was able to conduct so spatial analysis that I needed to do by investing a small amount on money and time into Simple GIS.
