Whitebox Geospatial Analysis Tools

The Whitebox GAT project is an exciting new open-source GIS project. Whitbox is as much a philosophical approach to geomatics as it is a GIS/Remote Sensing package. This philosophy of transparency, from which Whitebox derives its name, has led to the development of some rather unique and innovative features in the software. To learn more about this philosophy of transparent GIS/RS, please follow this link.

Whitebox GAT has its origins embedded in an older freeware GIS/RS software, the Terrain Analysis System (TAS). Whitebox offers some real improvements over this older software.
