GIS-related activities have a long history at the Department of Earth Sciences, both with research and education. One special target is the development of user-friendly tool for urban climate research where people at the department is trying to reach out with their climate models to a broader public. To accomplish this, open source products are essential. Furthermore, education activities have recently also staring a process where more open source alternatives are used.
