ossim - High performance software system for remote sensing, image processing , geographical information systems and photogrammetry. (viji is working on it)
- osm2go - osm2go is an editor for openstreetmap.org map data.
- osm2pgsql - osm2pgsql imports map data from OpenStreetMap to a PostgresSQL database
- python-shapely - python-shapely - Geometric objects, predicates, and operations
Wishlist and interesting apps
- GeoNetwork - GeoNetwork is a catalog application to manage spatially referenced resources
- OpenSceneGraph - High performance 3D graphics toolkit (viji started packaging)
- gdal-grass - Standalone GRASS 6 Drivers for GDAL and OGR (viji started packaging)
- SpatiaLite - a complete Spatial DBMS in a nutshell (volter started packaging)
- AtlasStyler - the Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD) / Symbology Encoding (SE) tool for OGC-compatible styling of geodata.
- BeeGIS - opensource tool for Digital Field Mapping. Seems that they didn't try to build it for Linux (although its based upon JGrass/uDig/Eclipse).
- epigramm - Epigrass is a open-source simulation platform created to study epidemics and their spatial (geographic) dynamics
- EPSG - OGP Surveying and Positioning Committee Geodetic Parameter Dataset
- FoxtrotGPS - A mapping and GPS application like tangoGPS (started with packaging FabianAffolter)
- Generate and distribute GPS position fixes from attached GPS devices
- Geopublisher - a software that allows you to create digital multimedia atlases. The atlases can be automatically published on a media (CD, DVD, USB-stick), as well as on the Internet.
- GeoServer - like MapServer but written in Java

- HidroSIG - a GIS with special tools that will allow you to make estimations and analysis of hydrological, climatic and geomorphological variables.
- JGrass - open source GIS based on the GIS framework of uDig (that is why the intro looks so similar to that of uDig). JGrass tries to exploit in its engine the power of GRASS.
- libnav - LibNav is an algorithm library for navigation and positioning. (started with packaging FabianAffolter, I thinks that libnav depends on gpstk)
- MapGuide - web-based platform for developing and deployment web mapping applications and geospatial web services.

- uDig - open source (LGPL) desktop application framework, built with Eclipse Rich Client (RCP) technology.
- mumpot - A gtk mapping application
- gmapcatcher - An offline map viewer
- python-gpsd - Python GPS Daemon
- SAGA - GIS with API for processing geodata (volter started packaging)
