SpatialNews.com Press Release

The FreeGIS Team announces the stable release 1.0.0 of the GeographicInformation Tool Thuban
Printer Friendly versionPrinter Friendly


Thuban is an interactive viewer for geographic data layers. It can handle Shapefiles, PostgreSQL/PostGIS spatial databases and raster data. The user interface makes data exploration easy. Notable features are the legend editor with some automatic classification, projection support and management of attribute tables.

Thuban is Free Software licensed under the GNU General Public License. It is platform independent using the wxPython framework and builds upon powerful libraries. Intevation GmbH has helped to start the FreeGIS project about four years ago which provides the most comprehensive overview of Free Software GIS components on www.freegis.org. "One incentive to start developing Thuban was to fill a missing link in the FreeGIS world", says Jan-Oliver Wagner, coordinator of the FreeGIS project.

Thuban has been designed as a platform for GIS applications. An example is the simulation system GREAT-ER (Geography Referenced Regional Exposure Assessment Tool for European Rivers). Thuban features an API for developing Add-Ons and other extensions. Experimental WMS client functionality and APR (Arcview project) file importer are two examples.

Thuban supports language locales. The application has been translated into English, French, German, Italian, Russian (cyrillic script) and Spanish. The current user documentation is in English.

Binary packages for RedHat Linux (RPM, tested on RH 7.2), Debian GNU/Linux and Windows 2000, sources, screen-shots and details:
