The ILWIS software suite was developed over 30 years ago by the ITC Enschede, the Netherlands. Originally a commercial product it was released as a free product in 2005 and continues to enjoy a very active developer and user base. Apart from being freely available, ILWIS includes a very comprehensive Spatial Multicriteria Evaluation (SMCE) module that is more capable and user friendly than many commercial products. This SMCE module can be used for a variety of environmental and sustainable land management purposes, including protected area and corridor zoning, agricultural suitability analysis, environmental sensitivity evaluation, disaster risk assessments, etc.
