GIS on a USB stick.
Announcement: Portable GIS Version 5.8 has been released!
See portablegis.xyz for more details.
The current set of software includes:
Desktop GIS packages QGIS (with GRASS plugin) version 2.18.1
FWTools (GDAL and OGR toolkit)
Apache2 and Php5
PostgreSQL (version 9.1)/Postgis (version 2.1)
Mapserver 5.6 and 6, OpenLayers.
Python 2.7 with GDAL 1.9 libraries and Psycopg2
Loader- for loading gml such as Ordnance Survey Mastermap into a PostgreSQL Database
Utilities- portable firefox, pdf reader and text editor
The packages and menu system are all open source, but each component has a separate license. Some of the components have been altered in order to make them drive-letter independent.
This is not for production use. In order to keep end user configuration to a minimum there are a number of security holes and as such it should be used for demonstration and home use only.
It is also not “stealth GIS”- no attempt has been made to leave no trace on the host system.
