Hoy vamos a comentar una página web y una buena iniciativa

Se trata sobre GIS, sistema de información geográfica, pero en este caso pensado para ubuntu. Espero que os guste aunque está todo en inglés y copiado de la página web que a continuación os comento. Que disfruteis:



Your Ubuntu is ready for daily, professional GIS work. Getting started it's just a matter of minutes. You can easily install on your machine each of the GIS applications listed below (in brackets the package name), through the Synaptic Package Manager or typing sudo apt-get install program-name from the command line, just like any other package.

You can find an unofficial repository with updated GRASS 6.2 packages adding to your sources the following line:

deb http://les-ejk.cz/ubuntu edgy multiverse

Les-ejk UbuntuGIS repository

  1. To use this repository, add line

    deb http://les-ejk.cz/ubuntu gutsy multiverse
    deb-src http://les-ejk.cz/ubuntu gutsy multiverse


    deb http://les-ejk.cz/ubuntu feisty multiverse
    deb-src http://les-ejk.cz/ubuntu feisty multiverse

    to your /etc/apt/sources.list file. This can be done easily using

    sudo echo "deb http://les-ejk.cz/ubuntu/ gutsy multiverse" >>/etc/apt/sources.list

    The word "gutsy" stays for your Ubuntu version ("gutsy" for 7.10, "feisty" 7.4 and so on). You can check code names for more detail.

    Do NOT forget to make also universe and multiverse repositories available:

    # Universe and multiverse
    deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ edgy universe multiverse
    deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/
    edgy universe multiverse
  2. Download my gpg key to your apt sources:

    wget -q http://les-ejk.cz/pgp/jachym_cepicky-gpg.pub -O - | sudo apt-key add -
  3. Now you can run

    sudo apt-get update

    Then you can install e.g. GRASS GIS 6.2.1 using command

    sudo apt-get install grass

    If you want source package of GRASS GIS

    sudo apt-get source grass

Packages description

This packages were compiled using debian configuration files from debian distribution, debian-gis project and sometimes even using configuration files from program itself. Target of this repository is to provide fresh stable versions of GIS programs for Ubuntu (and maybe other Debian-based distributions).

Mostly, there are connection packages between two programs avaliable too, like gdal-grass or qgis-grass links.

Supported platforms

VersionCode nameRepository keywordi386amd64
Ubuntu 6.06Dapper DrakedapperYesNo
Ubuntu 6.10Edgy EftedgyYesYes
Ubuntu 7.04Feisty FawnfeistyYesYes
Ubuntu 7.10Gutsy GibbongutsyYesNo

I would like to add other distros and platforms too in the future. However - it is not possible for one man to do it in long terms. So - if you can, download the sources, recompile for your platform and send the packages to me.

List of avaliable packages

This packages are not available for all Ubuntu versions. It is just list of the current actual versions for current Ubuntu version, which are available at Les-ejk.
