Likelihood to Recommend:Not LikelyExtremely Likely
Pros: This program offers an easy to use and effective mapping software. The capabilities of this software are above and beyond what I would have expected from a free program. I use QGIS at least once a day for various mapping projects whether it be preparing a site map, a tax map, or topographic maps. It makes mapping sample points, or integrating various graphical project data simple. I had no previous formal GIS training and I found this program easy to understand a pick up quickly.
Cons: Some file formats are not accepted as imports into QGIS so they may require a conversion before uploading. Additionally, the buffer function was removed from newer versions of the program.
Overall: Overall I am very satisfied with what I am able to produce using QGIS. With this program I can assemble great visuals for inclusion in my reports in a short amount of time.
