Using the metapackages
Metapackages are used by the blend as a convinient way of collecting together related software packages. Each metapackage when installed will cause the package management system to install the packages related to the task.
The following metapackages are currently maintained by the blend:
|This task contains packages providing data that can be used by different GIS applications.
|This task sets up your system for GIS development.
|Set of Debian packages which are dealing with GPS devices and data.
|Set of Debian packages which are dealing with OpenStreetMap data.
|Debian packages which are dealing with Remote Sensing (for instance Synthetic Aperture Radar -- SAR) processing (interferometry, polarimetry, data visualization, etc) and earth observation.
|Set of Debian packages which are useful for doing statistics with geographical data.
|Debian packages which are dealing with geographical information to be presented for the web on so called map tile servers. These are pretty useful when trying to setup an OpenStreetMap tile server but not restricted to OpenStreetMap data only.
|This task sets up your system to be a GIS workstation to process geographical information and make maps.
To install any of the task metapackages, use your favourite package
management tool as you would with any other Debian package. For
apt-get install gis-<task>
If you want to install the entire blend:
