New Packages Pushed

Packages for review

  • libproj4 - It was decided not to use/package this library.
  • Navit - car navigation system with routing engine. Dead Review.
  • ossim - High performance software system for remote sensing, image processing , geographical information systems and photogrammetry. Dead Review.
  • osm2go - osm2go is an editor for openstreetmap.org map data.
  • osm2pgsql - osm2pgsql imports map data from OpenStreetMap to a PostgresSQL database

Wishlist and interesting apps

  • AtlasStyler - the Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD) / Symbology Encoding (SE) tool for OGC-compatible styling of geodata.
  • BeeGIS - opensource tool for Digital Field Mapping. Seems that they didn't try to build it for Linux (although its based upon JGrass/uDig/Eclipse).
  • epigramm - Epigrass is a open-source simulation platform created to study epidemics and their spatial (geographic) dynamics
  • EPSG - OGP Surveying and Positioning Committee Geodetic Parameter Dataset
  • FoxtrotGPS - A mapping and GPS application like tangoGPS (started with packaging FabianAffolter)
  • GIS/PositionFixes Generate and distribute GPS position fixes from attached GPS devices
  • Geopublisher - a software that allows you to create digital multimedia atlases. The atlases can be automatically published on a media (CD, DVD, USB-stick), as well as on the Internet.
  • GeoServer - like MapServer but written in Java
  • GeoTools - The Open Source Java GIS Toolkit.
  • GPStk - Open source library and suite of applications (paused with packaging FabianAffolter)
  • HidroSIG - a GIS with special tools that will allow you to make estimations and analysis of hydrological, climatic and geomorphological variables.
  • JGrass - open source GIS based on the GIS framework of uDig (that is why the intro looks so similar to that of uDig). JGrass tries to exploit in its engine the power of GRASS.
  • libnav - LibNav is an algorithm library for navigation and positioning. (started with packaging FabianAffolter, I thinks that libnav depends on gpstk)
  • MapGuide - web-based platform for developing and deployment web mapping applications and geospatial web services.
  • OpenEV - software library and application for viewing and analysing raster and vector geospatial data.
  • osm2pgsql - A utility program that converts OpenStreetMap (.OSM) data into a format that can be loaded into PostgreSQL
  • Thuban - Interactive Geographic Data Viewer.
  • uDig - open source (LGPL) desktop application framework, built with Eclipse Rich Client (RCP) technology.
  • mumpot - A gtk mapping application
  • gmapcatcher - An offline map viewer
  • python-gpsd - Python GPS Daemon
