Debian GIS Project
Summary
Development
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) development

This task sets up your system for GIS development.

The list to the right includes various software projects which are of some interest to the Debian GIS Project. Currently, only a few of them are available as Debian packages. It is our goal, however, to include all software in Debian GIS which can sensibly add to a high quality Debian Pure Blend.

For a better overview of the project's availability as a Debian package, each head row has a color code according to this scheme:

If you discover a project which looks like a good candidate for Debian GIS to you, or if you have prepared an unofficial Debian package, please do not hesitate to send a description of that project to the Debian GIS mailing list

libcitygml is a small and easy to use open source C++ library for parsing CityGML files in such a way that data can be easily exploited by 3D rendering applications (geometry data are tesselated and optimized for rendering during parsing). For instance, it can be used to develop readers of CityGML files in many 3D based applications (OpenGL, OpenSceneGraph, ...) Most metadata are not lost, they are available through a per-node hashmap.

CityGML (City Geography Markup Language) is an XML-based schema for the modelling and exchange of georeferenced 3D city and landscape models that is quickly being adopted on an international level.

This package contains develop files: static and header files of libcitygml.

GDAL is a translator library for raster geospatial data formats. As a library, it presents a single abstract data model to the calling application for all supported formats. The related OGR library (which lives within the GDAL source tree) provides a similar capability for simple features vector data.

GDAL supports many popular data formats, including commonly used ones (GeoTIFF, JPEG, PNG and more) as well as the ones used in GIS and remote sensing software packages (ERDAS Imagine, ESRI Arc/Info, ENVI, PCI Geomatics). Also supported many remote sensing and scientific data distribution formats such as HDF, EOS FAST, NOAA L1B, NetCDF, FITS.

OGR library supports popular vector formats like ESRI Shapefile, TIGER data, S57, MapInfo File, DGN, GML and more.

This package contains the files needed to develop a software that will use the GDAL/OGR (headers, static objects, configuration script).

Geo::Google::MapObject is intended to provide a server side solution to working with the Google Maps API. In particular an object of this class encapsulates a "map" object that provides support for the static maps API, the javascript maps API, AJAX calls and non-javascript fallback data; but without making many assumptions about the surrounding framework. It is assumed that a template framework with support for a "dot" notation is being used, for example HTML::Template::Pluggable. An important commitment of the module is support for graceful and consistent fallback to a functional non-javascript web page.

The javascript and static Google map APIs do not behave in quite the same way when zoom and center are not specified. Specifically it works quite well with the static maps (http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/staticmaps/#ImplicitPositioning) but not so well with the javascript API. To compensate for this the module gives a choice between: specifying the center and zoom levels; allowing the APIs and client side code to do whatever they think best; using a built in algorithm to calculate a sensible zoom and center; and finally supplying ones own algorithm to calculate a sensible zoom and center.

libLAS is a C/C++ library for reading and writing ASPRS LAS versions 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 data. The LAS format is a sequential binary format used to store data from sensors and as intermediate processing storage by some LiDAR-related applications. LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is an optical remote sensing technology that measures properties of scattered light to find range and/or other information of a distant target. The prevalent method to determine distance to an object or surface is to use laser pulses.

This package contains the development files to build applications in C++.

PostGIS adds support for geographic objects to the PostgreSQL object-relational database. In effect, PostGIS "spatially enables" the PostgreSQL server, allowing it to be used as a backend spatial database for geographic information systems (GIS), much like ESRI's SDE or Oracle's Spatial extension. PostGIS follows the OpenGIS "Simple Features Specification for SQL".

This library is the generic geometry handling section of PostGIS. The geometry objects, constructors, destructors, and a set of spatial processing functions, are implemented here. This package contains the development files.

Mapnik is an OpenSource C++/Python toolkit for developing GIS (Geographic Information Systems) applications. At the core is a C++ shared library providing algorithms/patterns for spatial data access and visualization.

Essentially a collection of geographic objects (map, layer, datasource, feature, geometry), the library doesn't rely on "windowing systems" and is intended to work in multi-threaded environments

High-level Python bindings (boost.python) facilitate rapid application development, targeting zope3, django, etc.

This package contains the development headers, API documentation, and build utilities.

Open Source Software Image Map (OSSIM) is a high performance engine for remote sensing, image processing, geographical information systems and photogrammetry. It has been actively developed since 1996.

Designed as a series of high performance software libraries, it is written in C++ employing the latest techniques in object-oriented software design.

The library provides advanced remote sensing, image processing, and geo-spatial functionality. A quick summary of OSSIM functionality includes ortho-rectification, precision terrain correction, rigorous sensor models, very large mosaics, and cross sensor fusions, a wide range of map projections anddatums, and a large range of commercial and government data formats. The architecture of the library supports parallel processing with mpi, a dynamic plugin architecture, and dynamically connectable objects allowing rapid prototyping of custom image processing chains.

This package includes the development files to build programs that use the OSSIM library.

ReadOSM is an open source library to extract valid data from within an OpenStreetMap input file. Such OSM files come in two different formats, .osm (XML) and .pbf.

Some of the design goals of ReadOSM are:

  • to be simple and lightweight
  • to be stable, robust and efficient
  • to be easily and universally portable
  • making the whole parsing process of both .osm or .osm.pbf files completely transparent from the application own perspective.

This package contains files needed for development.

libLAS is a C/C++ library for reading and writing ASPRS LAS versions 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 data. The LAS format is a sequential binary format used to store data from sensors and as intermediate processing storage by some LiDAR-related applications. LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is an optical remote sensing technology that measures properties of scattered light to find range and/or other information of a distant target. The prevalent method to determine distance to an object or surface is to use laser pulses.

This package contains a Python module to use libLAS.
