GeoGig - Geospatial Distributed Version Control System
Welcome to the GeoGig project, exploring the use of distributed management of spatial data. GeoGig draws inspiration from Git, but adapts its core concepts to handle versioning of geospatial data. Users are able to import raw geospatial data (currently from Shapefiles, PostGIS or SpatiaLite) in to a repository where every change to the data is tracked. These changes can be viewed in a history, reverted to older versions, branched in to sandboxed areas, merged back in, and pushed to remote repositories. GeoGig is written in Java, available under the BSD License.
Project Lead: Gabriel Roldan
Status: A 1.0 version has been released and it is available for download, with a full commandline interface to import data and work with repositories.
The build is actively monitored at LocationTech Build Server.
