The geospatial Babelfish ...


GDAL is a translator library for raster geospatial data formats that is released under an X/MIT style Open Source license by the Open Source Geospatial Foundation. As a library, it presents a single abstract data model to the calling application for all supported formats. It also comes with a variety of useful commandline utilities for data translation and processing. The NEWS page describes the August 2009 GDAL/OGR 1.6.2 release.

The related OGR library (which lives within the GDAL source tree) provides a similar capability for simple features vector data.
