Default Bug#507352: ITP: qlandkartegt -- GPS mapping (GeoTIFF and vector) and Garmin GPSr management

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Michael Hanke <michael.hanke@gmail.com>

* Package name : qlandkartegt
Version : 0.9.0
Upstream Author : Oliver Eichler <oliver.eichler@gmx.de>
* URL : http://www.qlandkarte.org/
* License : GPL-2
Programming Lang: C++
Description : GPS mapping (GeoTiff and vector) and GPSr management

This package provides a versatile tool for GPS maps in GeoTiff format as
well as Garmin's img vector map format. QLandkarteGT is the successor of
QLandkarte. Among various improvements (e.g. 2D/3D map rendering and
reduced ressource demands) the major difference is its
device-independent architecture, which is not limited to Garmin devices
anymore. Therefore, the package also does not include device drivers.
Drivers for a number of Garmin devices are available from the
<yet-to-be-determined-package-name> package.

Additionally, QLandkarteGT serves as a frontend to the GDAL tools, to
make georeferencing of scanned maps feasible for users. In contrast to
similar tools (e.g. QGis) its straightforward interface is especially
suited for non-scientific users.
