By taking advantage of open source products, and by stretching the definition of location, we were able to program xml and SVG tools to perform many of the functions of a standard geographic information system (GIS). Additionally, we were able to develop prototypes of document management, content management and knowledge visualization tools that are not easily available through standard GIS tools.
