We continuously strive to provide new Internet-based tools to help foster and grow the GIS community. Many of our users have requested us to set up a knowledge sharing platform that will enable them to share their knowledge with the community. This will not only be useful to all of us to enhance our knowledge of GIS, but will also help neo-geographers to understand GIS and quickly ramp up their GIS skills to be more productive.
