GeoFIS provides Debian packages to install on some Linux distributions. All required dependencies will be installed with GeoFIS (you must accept the dependencies for GeoFIS working properly).

This version is not installed by default on older Linux distribution.

Follow instructions to install OpenJDK 8 on Ubuntu 14.04 “Trusty”.

Some GeoFIS operations needs the R software (version >= 3.0) to be installed for working.
Your Linux distribution contain a default R software. We recommend to use the latest available R software for your distribution, some R packages used by GeoFIS are not available (or have bugs) with older version of R. See known problems with R.
Follow instructions to install or update R software on Linux.
At the first launch of GeoFIS, or after a major update of R software, the required R packages will be compiled and installed (this can be quite long…).
