In order to visualize spatial data via web services in this and other spatial data infrastructure is necessary to use viewfinders. They should be able to view maps of service standards meet the specifications of the OGC and ISO standards.
In the event that any user wishing to use a different display to that used in geoportal provide some links to some viewers outside of the Spatial Data Infrastructure of Andalusia, while other Spatial Data Infrastructure development companies.
The spatial information viewers can be classified as embedded browsers, light clients or heavy clients depending on whether you can use and access via a web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc) or local installation.
Below is a list of Open Source viewers or customers, classified by type, embedded, light or heavy, to access the information on this and other spatial data infrastructure.
Web ViewersListing several light viewers accessible via web and fully operational so that users who want access to the maps of this spatial data infrastructure through other than the viewers that this is geoportal configured. This in turn allows to verify that all services of maps of the Spatial Data Infrastructure of Andalusia are interoperable.
OpenLayers makes it easy to display a dynamic map in any web page. Can display maps and markers loaded from any source. OpenLayers is completely free, open source and released under the BSD license.
Mapbender is the tip of the iceberg, a meta layer of software providing access to all services IDE. a project of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo). It allows a full map navigation (zoom, pan, queries, adding more maps). You can also add new points to the map, etc.
End user interfaces are modular, they show only the required functionality. At the same time, it is possible to create interfaces with a security proxy, scanning, automatic adjustment and more.
The management interface gives administrators the autonomy they need to keep and classify and map services allow access to individuals, groups and other services. Using standardized services such as WMS and transactional WFS allows use of different services interoperable map servers.

GvsiggvSIG is a tool oriented to manage geographic information, which is distributed under GNU GPL. It is characterized by a friendly interface, being able to access the most usual form of both raster and vector agile as well as interactive maps that meet the specifications of the OGC. This is one of the main features of gvSIG over other Geographic Information System, the implementation of important services OGC: WMS (Web Map Service), WFS (Web Feature Service), WCS (Web Coverage Service), Service Catalog and Service gazetteer.
Is developed in Java programming language, running Microsoft Windows operating systems, Linux and Mac OS X, and uses standard GIS libraries recognized as Geotools or Java Topology Suite (JTS). Likewise, gvSIG has a scripting language based on Jython and also can be created using extensions in Java classes gvSIG.
Among the file formats of most popular among those with access to vector formats GML, SHP, DXF, DWG, DGN, KML, and raster image formats such as MrSID, GeoTIFF, ENVI, or ECW.

KosmoKosmo is a GIS desktop advanced features. It is the first component of a series of developments that are under way and that, from now on, being made available to the entire community.
Kosmo has been implemented using the Java programming language developed from the JUMP platform and a long series of open source libraries of recognized and used in many free software projects among which Geotools and JTS. Available for Windows and Linux operating systems.
This tool can display and process spatial data, characterized by having a friendly user interface, having the ability to access multiple data formats both vector (on file as a DXF or Shapefile in database as PostgreSQL, MySQL or Oracle) and raster (TIFF, GeoTIFF, ECW, MrSID, or other georeferenced image formats such as BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG), capable of editing and, in general, many utilities offer the user GIS .
