Generic Mapping Tools

Generic Mapping Tools
GMT is an open source collection of about 80 command-line tools for manipulating geographic and Cartesian data sets (including filtering, trend fitting, gridding, projecting, etc.) and producing PostScript illustrations ranging from simple x–y plots via contour maps to artificially illuminated surfaces and 3D perspective views; the GMT supplements add another 40 more specialized and discipline-specific tools. GMT supports over 30 map projections and transformations and comes with support data such as GSHHG coastlines, rivers, and political boundaries. GMT is developed and maintained by Paul Wessel, Walter H. F. Smith, Remko Scharroo, Joaquim Luis and Florian Wobbe, with help from a global set of volunteers, and is supported by the National Science Foundation. It is released under the GNU Lesser General Public License version 3 or any later version.

Osm2postgresql To simplify rendering with QGIS and other GIS/web servers, this script sets up a PostgreSQL / PostGIS server or database, imports OSM data into it, process those data (including multi-polygons with holes) and proposes a classification. This project is different from the following projects: (although they have a few common goals, hence the related names). It is available at 3D converters software - on Linux - Notes and Code Introduction : This is a page of links to 3D software files --- files that can be used to install (or develop) 3D CONVERTER programs --- on Linux systems --- especially on Ubuntu (around version 9.10 = 2009 Oct, Karmic Koala - and beyond). Many of the links are to locally stored files (source and/or binaries/packages). The code is stored locally both for convenience (especially mine), AND because some of the 3D-converter authors are going on to other projects (or to other worlds) and it is questionable whether the code will be preserved for future generations to build upon. Furthermore, the info on 3D converters for Linux is consolidated (to a great extent) on this one page --- instead of in many bookmarks in my web browsers on my various machines.

Osm2pgsql Available languages — osm2pgsql is a command-line based program that converts OpenStreetMap data to postGIS-enabled PostgreSQL databases. Such databases are often used to render OSM data visually using Mapnik, as PostgreSQL is one of the most efficient and flexible formats Mapnik can use for querying large amounts of data. For more information on using osm2pgsql to render OpenStreetMap data with Mapnik, see the Mapnik page. Its homepage is: It currently does not have a sole maintainer but is maintained by a community of contributors and Osm2pgsql does not a designate 'stable' or 'development' versions but most recent builds should be able to be used in a production environment.

Mesh Generation and Grid Generation: Software This is a list of public domain and commercial mesh generators (click here for other sources of interest). I have listened only programs for which online information exists. There is also a section on papers that review mesh generators. If you are interested in special programs, the following links might guide you directly to interesting places: LED Maps Light Up Wherever You’ve Been, or Where You’re Going July 6th, 2011 by Paul Strauss Do you travel a lot? While you could certainly use any of a number of digital tools to keep track of all the locations you’ve visited, it might be sort of cool to have a more physical manifestation of your journeys than just some Google Maps page that only exists in the digital ether of The Cloud. These LED wall maps might just do the trick. Each one of these map is capable of powering LED markers placed at any location on the map.
