Abstract: In the past few years organizations and companies have developed new standards which have been proved highly efficient both in the public and private sector. The most important of them is the Quality Management System regulated by the standard ISO 9001. This standard proves how its implementation represents sensitive improvements of the production system, optimizing the product and increasing its quality. This phenomenon is not isolated within software engineering's frame. Many works have been published, like Boehm and McCall, of which have raised many standards among which the ISO/IEC 9126 is highlighted. Regarding this fact, it has been possible to create different solutions for multiple related problems with IT. Nowadays, the Geographic Information Systems' project managers do not have a tool for either selecting the software to implement their projects or supporting this selection in technical criteria. The questions are: which one of the commercial software packages is appropriat e to my project? Which one of the software packages follows the requests of the project out? Which one of this software supports the needs of the users? This article presents a quality model to support these decisions. This way, project managers can make their decisions based on a set of metrics which are product of the deep evaluation of characteristics, subcharacteristics and attributes of the software. These metrics has been developed to apply for all models based on ISO/IEC 9126-1 standard. The mentioned elements allow user to know which of the software packages is the best through a GIS Quality Indicator, generated through the model. This indicator allows GIS’ project managers to take decisions based on a technical criterion. A model in accordance with international standards related to product quality in software engineering such as ISO/IEC 9126-1. (More)
