“Software & Data Requirements: Microsoft® Excel 2000 or higher; Microsoft® Windows 2000 or higher; and Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or higher” so software is absolutely not “free of charge”.
Another thing that such type of software MUST be open source. Now I only see that “numerous experts from government” invest in some commercial software. Investment in open source software would make hundreds time more effort with same amount of investment.
