Monday morning. I tried to pick up right where I left off on Friday – to get all this open source GIS stuff to install under LInux… thankfully google took me to the Ubuntu-GIS page. Why didn’t it occur to me that there might be a lively GIS community running ubuntu… Here is the link to: UbuntuGIS. And rather than worry about the stupid compiling from source code which keeps giving me errors and comes up with missing libraries, I’m just going to install packages from Synaptic and hope that the pieces – Proj, GEOS, GDAL, PostgreSQL, PostGIS – all fall in place. I will post on my success (or lack therof) soon.
