Prodevelop has been using and supporting free and open source software for geomatics several years. Besides being part of the development team of gvSIG, Prodevelop integrates free software from the GIS arena but also from other areas like business intelligence and web applications. So, at the end of 2006 we started an internal initiative to create a catalog to get the state of the art on free geomatics. This effort has several objectives as it will be shown in this article. Briefly, we present a report summarizing the most prominent FOSS4G projects, we hope it will be useful for every reader who starts working in this discipline.
