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

Binary packages

Core infrastructure
  • GDAL: Convert between many geospatial data formats

  • PROJ: proj-doc: there are PDF files available, perhaps those would be better?

  • PostGIS

  • GEOS

Desktop GIS
  • GRASS: Powerful GIS for modeling and analysis

  • QGIS: Easy to use GIS. Includes qgis-plugin-grass

  • OpenJUMP: in debian/contrib, because it depend on batik and sun jre. Work is being done to get batik into debian/main, and openjump to work with GNU Classpath. Packaged instead of JUMP

  • Saga GIS

  • thuban

Web services

OpenStreetMap

GPS apps and Navigation

Desktop apps

Cartography
  • gmt: The Generic Mapping Tools

Utilities
  • Avce00 and E00compr

  • GeoTranz: similar in function to "proj" or "cs2cs" from PROJ.4, but in the form of a Java hand calculator.

To be sorted

Useful packages to be packaged

Sorted by approximate priority.

Libraries and bindings

Desktop/Analysis/Database

Data

Sample datasets
  • GRASS's Spearfish dataset
  • GRASS/OSGeo's North Carolina sample dataset

Java

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

Live Web Apps

Lower Priority

  • MB-System: multibeam, interferometry, and sidescan sonar data processing (GPL)

  • JGrass: currently being worked on. Contrib - needs jdk1.4, several contrib packages. Currently being fused with uDig - better postpone packaging until settled down

  • Postgisdriver-JUMP: currently being worked on. Contrib - depends on jump

3D Visualization

  • Virtual 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
