Adaption or adoption? (subheading)[edit]

I'm pretty sure that the subheading title "Adaption" is meant to be "Adoption"

  • Adaption means to alter something to fit it to a newer or different purpose or situation,
  • Adoption means to take something from outside into habit or familiar relationship.

Tobias, you are doing a lot of maintenance on this this article lately - if you change the subtitle then ok, or else respond here; or I'll change it in a few days. Stringybark (talk) 06:45, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I hadn't noticed until now. --Tobias1984 (talk) 09:27, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

External links to KDE[edit]

What is this huge block of external links to KDE that has been added by an anonymous contributor? It looks largely, or wholly, irrelevant - at least to a typical reader (as opposed to a tiny fraternity of KDE geeks). Unless it is justified, it ought to be removed, as it seems to be junk Stringybark (talk) 07:51, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

@Stringybark: I collapsed the template. These link boxes have become a little dominant in the layout. Hopefully there will be a better way to integrate those boxes at some point. Tobias1984 (talk) 08:30, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

comparison of GIS tools[edit]

I need a comparison list for the free GIS softwares ... any ieas how to make one?

There could be a section or some fun linking all the different free-gis applications...

Did you look at this: Comparison of geographic information systems software? You could update or create a new table on that page. --Tobias1984 (talk) 14:19, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
