Previous Versions TerraLib 5.0 and TerraView 5.0

The TerraLib Project Team is launching a completely reengineered version of the TerraLib Library, called TerraLib 5.0 LTS.

TerraLib is a open source GIS software library to support the development of customized geographical applications.

The term LTS is applicable to open-source-software projects designed to be supported for a longer than normal period - in our case two years - along of this period several adjustments can be applied in order to improve the software that will be always communicated in the distribution wiki page.

Together with the TerraLib 5.0 LTS we are launching the GIS TerraView 5.0 LTS. Both are free and open source under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL). Both are developed by the National Institute for Space Research (INPE), Brazil.

Binaries (executables) of TerraView 5.0 LTS, built for different platforms, can be downloaded from here.

To download the source code, build and install TerraLib 5.0 LTS and TerraView 5.0 LTS follow the instructions in the pages Working environment, Download and Build and Install.


The TerraView 5.0 has been built on top of the TerraLib 5.0. In its newest version, TerraLib presents new concepts (such as Project) that were not available in the previous versions. It also presents new (or enhanced versions) of functions for data conversion and data exchanging; access to different data sources; map display; explanatory spatial data analysis; spatial and non-spatial queries; vector and raster processing and spatio-temporal analysis functionalities.

These changes are reflected in TerraView 5.0 interfaces.

We would like to have feedbacks from users of the new TerraView in order to keep releasing improvements under the LTS system.

Any feedbacks should be sent to terralib-community@dpi.inpe.br.
