5-star app, with no doubt. Free, open source and able to open/import previous projects from paid/subscription apps. Vast open source global effort to produce plugins to add to functionality. Ditto help and information resources. Best in its field and highly recommended.

It is the best program for GIS in Mac OS. It has developed very well recently. All kinds of documents are also available.

32 Bits Intel Mac Users, beware that since QGIS 1.7 the binary package is 64 bits compatible only, so much for the open source spirit...!

It seems the GDAL upgrade from 1.9 to 1.10 changed the way CSV files are handled so that I now have a non-functioning QGIS. App hangs trying to import csv data file when previously had no problems with this and other csv text files. I have deleted all data files, all files in the hidden .QGIS folder, all prefs and caches etc yet the app continuously tries to load the problematic file that I have deleted. Even replacing the bad file with another CSV file that works in another project fails to prevent the hang. So now I have to recreate the project with customised colour schemes and 100s of hours of devt over the last 6 months while QGIS was stable. User beware! GDAL 1.10 may result in catastrophic failure of your QGIS projects
