FLAMINGO: The Simple Interactive Mapviewer
Entry ID: FLAMINGO_GIS
Abstract: Flamingo is a simple interactive mapviewer, no more no less. But this limitation is also the strongest point of Flamingo. With only a handful of tool buttons users can easily use a map. Flamingo offers only the basic tools as zoom in and out, pan, identify and search.
