Your Ubuntu is ready for daily, professional GIS work. Getting started -- it's just a matter of minutes. After adding the UbuntuGIS repository corresponding to their distribution (in sources.list), 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.

UbuntuGIS FAQ

  • Q: Is UbuntuGIS another, separate, distribution? Or a subset of packages that I can install as a whole on my machine? Or an external repository?

    • A: An external repository (PPA). UbuntuGIS is a repository that can be added in your sources.list which will provide up to date packages.

  • Q: Do you just repackage the DebianGIS packages?

    • A: Basically, yes. We rebuild/adapt the DebianGIS packages in the different Ubuntu distributions.

  • Q: Can I install DebianGIS packages on Ubuntu?

    • A: You can try, but it's not recommended. Ubuntu and Debian have source compatibility (e.g. they are built from the same sources), but binary compatibility is not guaranteed to work. Add to this that many packages may have different names due to different compile environments, and you'll see it can be a bit frustrating. However, it might work for you if you manage to tweak the packages to work.
