How to update / add a project in the documentation
Since documentation is built automatically, projects data are stored in
project_info.csv file. It is the main point of entry of the docs.
It can be found here: https://github.com/OSGeo/OSGeoLive-doc/blob/master/projects_info.csv
To add a new project, you have to add a new line in this file. To update a project informations, just modify the corresponding line. Then commit and push your changes and make a pull request to the OSGeoLive repository.
The file is organized with 13 columns/fields separated by the pipe
# document? | slug |version| Quickstart? |Overview?|Section| last | One Liner| OpenHub name |URL|kind|name|ISO
The 13 fields are described below.
Several categories have been made with comments to help organize the projects. Please add your project in the corresponding one:
- Desktop GIS : General GIS viewing, editing and analysis in the browser
- Browser Facing GIS: General GIS viewing, editing and analysis in the browser
- Web Services: Publishing spatial data to the internet
- Data Stores: Storing spatial data
- Navigation and Maps
- Spatial Tools: Specific analysis tools
- Domain Specific GIS: Applications targeted at a specific domain
- Data: Spatial data sets
- Geospatial Libraries
- RETIRED: projects that have been retired for some reason but can be reactivated
Each field have a purpose in the doc building and should be fill carefully.

Each project has to have an Overview and a Quickstart. You can find more information on the dedicated pages:
Images are stocked in a specific folder: https://github.com/OSGeo/OSGeoLive-doc/tree/master/doc/images/projects
To create a new project, create a new folder here with
slug of your project. As the screenshot and the logo image will be use automatically to build the overview page, be careful with their name.
Locally, on your computer, it should be like this:
Please note that images have to be in the png format.
Update project logo
Project logos are stock in the images folder of the OSGeolive-doc folder following this path: https://github.com/OSGeo/OSGeoLive-doc/tree/master/doc/images/projects and are stocked in the project folder.
So if you want to change/update your project logo, just change the file there and that's it. Please call it
logo_<your-project-slug>.png so the program can find it.
It should be like this:
For example, for gvSIG, the project slug is:
gvsig so the logo is
Update project screenshot
Like logos, project screenshots for the overview page are stock in the images folder following this path:
For the automated process of building the documentation, we need you to call your screenshot image like this:
That way it will be find easily during the creation of the documentation.
It should be like this:
For example, for QGIS, the project slug is:
qgis so the logo is
