Sahana Eden is now featured on the OSGeo Live project hosted by the Open Source Geospatial Foundation. This is a 'self-container bootable DVD, USB thumb drive or Virtual Machine based on Xubuntu, that allows you to try a wide variety of open source geospatial software without installing anything'.
The Sahana Eden project leads for this are:
- Fran Boon
- Gavin Treadgold
The OSGeo Live project uses installation scripts to install and configure applications to work on the local environment, as well as configure the maps relative to the local spatial data that is installed on OSGeo Live.
The OSGeo Live 4.5 install script for Sahana Eden is available here.
OSGeo Live 4.5 Documentation
The following two sections are the text that will be provided on the Live installation. Note that the original text is cut-and-paste from the 4.0 version that contained Sahana Agasti.
