Step 1. Download the open source program QGIS
You need to download and install the GIS software QGIS in order to run GeoDataFarm, go to www.qgis.com and pick Download Now.
qgis_webpage

When it commes to which version to download, I recommend to download the OSGeo4W network installation (either 32bit or 64bit depending on your computer) and follow step 2. But from version 1.3.0 of GeoDataFarm the latest standalone version of QGIS also works to install!

(Step 4. Change language in QGIS)
QGIS uses the computer system by default, to follow the tutorial you might want to change it like this:

Force the system location and choose U.S. English in the menu, to see the changes you need to restart the program.
