The whole platform uses free software and open standards. This first phase it is complemented with the development of an on-line training module to undertake the transfer of the generated knowledge within the project. The main components that have been used were: gvSIG, QGis, uDig as clients advanced GIS-SDI; PostGreSQL+PostGIS as spatial database; framework geOrchestra that contains GeoServer as map server, GeoNetwork as catalogue server and OpenLayers+Mapfishapp as thin client (geoportal); MapServer like map server for the bottom OpenStreetMap; Debian like operating system; Apache like web server and finally Tomcat like application server.
