Drawmap reads data in the Digital Elevation Model (DEM), Digital Line Graph (DLG), and Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) formats. Can also work with SDTS, NAD-83, WGS-84, GTOPO30 data.

Using the data in these files, drawmap can produce various kinds of customized maps, including shaded relief maps (with or without roads, streams, place names, and so on) and topographic maps (again, with or without additional features).

Outputs sun raster format, portable gray map, or pov format files.

E00compr is an ANSI C library that reads and writes Arcinfo compressed E00 files. Both "PARTIAL" and "FULL" compression levels are supported. E00 files are the vector import/export format for Arcinfo. It is plain ASCII and is meant as an interchange format. ESRI considers the format to be proprietary, so this package may not read all E00 files as ESRI may change the format.

This package is useful for importing E00 files into the grass GIS system.

It contains the e00conv command-line program, which takes a E00 file as input (compressed or not) and copies it to a new file with the requested compression level (NONE, PARTIAL or FULL). The library is not included at this stage.

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 40+ 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 utility programs, based on GDAL/OGR library, namely gdal_translate, gdalinfo, gdaladdo, gdalwarp, ogr2ogr, ogrinfo, ogrtindex.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: pktools

GeoIP is a C library that enables the user to find the country that any IP address or hostname originates from. It uses a file based database.

This database simply contains IP blocks as keys, and countries as values and it should be more complete and accurate than using reverse DNS lookups.

This package contains the command line utilities to resolve the IP numbers using the GeoIP library.

GMT is a collection of tools that allow users to manipulate (x,y) and (x,y,z) data sets (including filtering, trend fitting, gridding, projecting, etc.) and produce Encapsulated PostScript File (EPS) illustrations ranging from simple x-y plots through contour maps to artificially illuminated surfaces and 3-D perspective views in black and white, gray tone, hachure patterns, and 24-bit color.

GMT supports many common map projections plus linear, log, and power scaling, and comes with support data such as coastlines, rivers, and political boundaries.

GPSBabel converts waypoints, tracks, and routes from one format to another, whether that format is a common mapping format like Delorme, Streets and Trips, or even a serial upload or download to a GPS unit such as those from Garmin and Magellan.

GPSBabel supports dozens of data formats and will be useful for tasks such as geocaching, mapping, and converting from one GPS unit to another. Among the interesting formats it supports are several GPS devices via a serial link, various PDA-based mapping programs, and various Geocaching data formats.

Among others GPSBabel supports the following formats:

Cetus, CoPilot Flight Planner, CSV, Custom CSV, Delorme Street Atlas, Delorme Street Atlas 2004 Plus, Delorms GPS Log, Delorme routes, DNA, EasyGPS Binary, Fugawi, Garmin serial, Geocaching.com loc, GeocachingDB, Geoniche, GPilotS, GPSDrive, GPSman, GPSPilot, gpsutil, GPX, Holux, IGC, Magellan serial, Magellan SD, Magellan Navigator Companion, Mapopolis.Com Mapconverter, Mapsend, Mapsource, Maptech, Microsoft Streets and Trips, Navicache, Netstumbler, NIMA/GNIS Geographic Names, NMEA sentences, OziExplorer, PalmDoc, PCX5, PocketStreets 2002 Pushpin, PSITrex, Quovadis, Tab-separated data, Tiger, TopoMapPro, Topo by National Geographic, xcsv, xmap, xmapwpt.

The gpsd service daemon can monitor one or more GPS devices connected to a host computer, making all data on the location and movements of the sensors available to be queried on TCP port 2947.

With gpsd, multiple GPS client applications can share access to devices without contention or loss of data. Also, gpsd responds to queries with a format that is substantially easier to parse than the different standards emitted by GPS devices.

JOSM is an editor for OpenStreetMap (OSM) written in Java. The current version supports stand alone GPX tracks, GPX track data from OSM database and existing nodes, line segments and metadata tags from the OSM database.

OpenStreetMap is a project aimed squarely at creating and providing free geographic data such as street maps to anyone who wants them. The project was started because most maps you think of as free actually have legal or technical restrictions on their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive or unexpected ways.

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 package contains the PostGIS userland binaries, common files.

Mapnik is an OpenSource C++ 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

This package contains the bindings for Python 2.

For curve, surface and function fitting with an emphasis on splines, spatial data and spatial statistics. The major methods include cubic, and thin plate splines, Kriging and compact covariances for large data sets. The splines and Kriging methods are supported by functions that can determine the smoothing parameter (nugget and sill variance) and other covariance parameters by cross validation and also by restricted maximum likelihood. For Kriging there is an easy to use function that also estimates the correlation scale (range). A major feature is that any covariance function implemented in R and following a simple fields format can be used for spatial prediction. There are also many useful functions for plotting and working with spatial data as images. This package also contains an implementation of sparse matrix methods for large spatial data sets.

Viking aims to be easy to use, yet powerful in accomplishing a wide variety of GPS related tasks. It uses a hierarchical layering system to organize GPS data, maps, and other layer types with spatial data, such as coordinate lines.

Some of the things you can use Viking for are:

  • Uploading and downloading waypoints, tracks to/from GPS.
  • Realtime GPS tracking and track recording.
  • Import and export of gpx files.
  • Preparing tracks and waypoints for trips using maps from services such as OpenStreetmap and Terraserver. You only need to upload the data to your GPS before you leave. The maps together with your tracks and waypoints can also be printed and used during the trip.
  • After trips, tracks and waypoints from GPS can be downloaded, stored, managed and reused in later trips.
  • Analyzing OHV and hiking trips, understanding where you went and how far you were from something.
  • Making waypoints and tracks to follow to easily get someplace you've never been before or don't have GPS data for but Terraserver maps exist for it.
  • Making maps with coordinate lines.
  • Analyzing speed at different places, adding waypoints where you forgot to mark one but did slow down or stop.

Google Earth is a 3D planet viewer that lets you interactively navigate satellite imagery, maps, terrain, and so forth.

Google Earth is available for GNU/Linux from their web site, but is non-free software and is undistributable. It also does not integrate well into a Debian system.

This utility makes it possible to build your own personal Debian package of Google Earth. The packaging itself is Free Software, but the Google Earth program is governed by the copyright holder (Google), so you may be limited as to what you can do with the resulting package (i.e. no redistribution, etc). This package will simply help you create the package, it is your responsibility to use the resulting package responsibly.

Packaging has started and developers might try the packaging code in VCS
