Gaia SDI Platform Now Available for Linux and Mac Users

Gaia on Ubuntu - accessing Bing Maps, Yahoo!, OpenStreetMap, WMS and WMTS

The Carbon Project today announced the beta release of Gaia 3.4 for Mono, a powerful free platform designed to support Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) users. The software was developed with the Mono Project open source framework, allowing Gaia to be used on any Linux or Mac desktop.

You can visit the Gaia site to download the free beta of Gaia 3.4 Mono today. Technical information and forums for the Gaia 3.4 platform are available at

Gaia 3.4 for Mono beta is a geospatial network platform that provides seamless synergy between Microsoft Bing Maps, Yahoo! Maps, OpenStreetMap, ESRI ArcGIS Server, Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) KML, GML, GMLsf, WMS, WMTS, WFS, Filters, WCS, ESRI Shape, Autodesk and MapInfo formats, and more.

Gaia for Mono is part of our commitment to help all SDI users meet tomorrow's infrastructure, transportation, environmental and national security challenges. Some of the most powerful desktop programs produced for Linux in recent years are built with the Mono open source .NET framework, and I’m very proud our team is able to bring Gaia to a new community of users.

Gaia 3.4 for Mono platform is built with the latest CarbonTools PRO open-geospatial development toolkit and its source code is available to CarbonTools PRO developers. The Gaia for Mono package is compiled to comply with the Mono Project multi-platform framework, allowing Gaia to be used on any Linux or Mac OS.

Initial Gaia development was sponsored by the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) Cooperative Agreements Program (CAP).

We welcome community feedback on Gaia 3.4 for Mono beta. If you would like more information please contact
