DebianGis Packages List

This page lists binary packages proposed for inclusion in Debian, and their status. Please, make the project name links to the upstream project home page. Please keep all packages derived from a given upstream project together.

The package list could be non up-to-date, this list is maintained by hand, please keep it with a grain of salt. See DebianGis Status for a synthesis page of archive status, automatically generated on a daily basis. This page is useful anyway to see interesting packages and comments about. See http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages#search_packages for an updated details.

Ready in official Debian

The packages found in the main Debian repositories may lag behind what is available from the DebianGIS SVN, which may lag behind the latest upstream release. Packages maintained by the DebianGIS team are drawn directly from our SVN.

Geospatial packages of core concern

Meta-packages

  • education-geography task from debian-edu: DebianGIS recommends these additions: qgis, gmt, gdal, proj. (education-geography already depends on grass):

  • GIS "workstation" task

Binary packages

Useful packages to be packaged

Sorted by approximate priority.

Libraries and bindings

Desktop/Analysis/Database

  • Ossim: currently being worked on (Francesco Lovergine)

  • PostLBS: powerful routing solution for PostgreSQL/PostGIS

  • TerraView: powerful GIS based on TerraLib (already in Debian, but obsolete)

  • OpenModeller: species occurrence modelling software

  • r-spatial: R/GRASS interface for GRASS 6 and other spatial software for R

  • garmin-utils: similar in scope and function to gpstrans, but works with modern serial Garmins. See also the NetBSD port

  • e-foto: aerial photogrammetry. See this unanswered post

  • zyGrib - Real-time weather forecast visualization. Unofficial debian packages available upstream.

  • ogr2gui - GUI frontend for GDAL's ogr2ogr vector geodata format converter

Data

OpenStreetMap

OpenStreetmap: Useful for upcoming release of gpsdrive

  • josm: Java Open Street Map Editor

  • gosmore: viewer of OSM XML data such as the planet.osm

  • Mapnik
  • mkgmap: OSM to Garmin maps converter

Sample datasets
  • GRASS's Spearfish dataset
  • OSGeo's NC sample dataset

Java

For more info on the Java state in Debian, see the moving java to Debian/main page.

Live Web Apps

3D Visualization

  • Visual Terrain Project: proposed

  • VisIt: 3D visualization

  • X3D: modern version of VRML, various libs & apps

  • OpenDX: the open source version of IBM's Visualization Data Explorer. Uses the IBM Public License

  • MINI: proposed, needed for VTerrain

  • OpenProducer: proposed, useful for ?OpenSceneGraph
