Summary
Data
Debian GIS data

This metapackage will install some packages providing data that can be used by different GIS applications.

Description

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

DCW-GMT is an enhancement to the original 1:1,000,000 scale vector basemap of the world available from the Princeton University Digital Map and Geospatial Information Center and from GeoCommunity at http://data.geocomm.com/readme/dcw/dcw.html. This data is for use by GMT, the Generic Mapping Tools.

GSHHG is a high-resolution shoreline data set amalgamated from two databases: Global Self-consistent Hierarchical High-resolution Shorelines (GSHHS) and CIA World Data Bank II (WDBII). GSHHG contains vector descriptions at five different resolutions of land outlines, lakes, rivers, and political boundaries. This data is for use by GMT, the Generic Mapping Tools.

This package contains the crude, low and intermediate resolution coastlines which will be enough to get you started.

Use gmt-gshhg-high or gmt-gshhg-full to create better quality maps at an higher resolution, but be aware that the full maps take space on your disk.

GSHHG contains vector descriptions at five different resolutions of land outlines, lakes, rivers, and political boundaries. This data is for use by GMT, the Generic Mapping Tools.

This package contains the full resolution coastlines which are required to create best quality maps with GMT.
