Hello all,

ILWIS, a popular GIS developed by the International Institute for
Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC), The Netherlands, is
to be made freeware from July 1st, 2007.

It may be good if we can persuade them to release it under GPL, or
any other Free software License. I think OSGeo is the right group to
communicate with ITC people and persuade them to release it as
a free software...
