Debian is used primary as a server for intensive processings, so that we can process heavy mapping and geographical data (solar irradiation, high resolution landcover from satellite imagery). We use mainly open-source softwares such as QGIS, Orfeo ToolBox, Grass GIS, SAGA, Python. We have chosen Debian for its focus on free software, its stability, its philosphy, and its «non-profit» culture… We have great hopes to support free softwares as alternatives to Windows and proprietary softwares, for governement organizations.
