This paper will present the results of a geospatial user community, which was conducted to support a future proposal for a Geospatial Software Institute (GSI). This survey should help elucidate user frustrations with geospatial tools and software, areas for improvement, and ultimately provide insight for the type of work researchers in a number of related fields could do with better advocacy and support.
