Cartaro on OSGeo-Live DVD4 March 2013
We are happy to announce that Cartaro is part of the OSGeo-Live DVD now. This gives everybody the chance to try out Cartaro locally without hazzling with the installation.
Cartaro is being used for a steadily increasing number of projects, and in parallel more and more people are wanting to try out the features of the geospatial CMS. In all cases when the online demo was not sufficient an individual installation became necessary for testing. However for all those who were new to some of the components in Cartaro, namely PostGIS and GeoServer, installation could become a real burden. Recently, since the addition of Cartaro to the OSGeo-Live DVD there is a new option for testing Cartaro without having to go through the installation process.
With the OSGeo-Live DVD it is enough to download an ISO-image or a Virtual Machine and follow the instructions to boot a complete Ubuntu Linux system. Cartaro then will be readily available and can be started from the system menu. The documentation that was especially adapted for OSGeo-Live gives all additional information needed to create and map geospatial content. A nice side-effect of the OSGeo-Live project is that documentation is becoming available in many different languages.
Cartaro is included on OSGeo-Live starting from its version 6.5. The DVD will be updated twice a year. Please note that the DVD may lag behind the newest releases of Cartaro. Download the latest release or use the demo for the newest version.
The Open Source Geospatial Foundation OSGeo is a non-profit organization which supports the development of open source geospatial software and promotes its use. We want to thank OSGeo for inviting us to be part of OSGeo-Live, for the support during the installation setup and for translating Cartaro documentation in many languages.
