The OSGeo4W package installs GDAL, OGR, QGIS, and some more things to your computer. It has it's own shell for commandline operation that is quite handy. It automates the install using the internet to download the separate programs.

OGR deals with vector transformations and functions. GDAL deals with raster and elevation data. QGIS is a really nice freeware GIS program.

Arno and I can probably answer most questions users may have about the package.

Another good find for making mesh alterations is Wilbur. You can use Wilbur and the OSGeo4W package tools to create the elusive fantasy island.

I'll second that. Good package of tools that are helpful when working with GIS data for FS.

As an update, if you install the recent stand-alone QGIS installation you will get the OSGeo4W command line tools (gdal, etc) as well. That might be easier than the OSGeo4W installer.
