QGIS is an Open Source Geographical Information System program – it comes with the right to download, run, copy, alter, and redistribute the software for free. It is designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of geographically referenced data. Nutrient Management Advisors can use QGIS for finding necessary information to import into RUSLE2 and to generate maps that are required in Nutrient Management Plans.
