On the 6th of July, 2006, the first international SAGA GIS User and developer meeting will be held at the AGIT Symposium in Salzburg.
SAGA (System for Automated Geoscientific Analyses) is a fast-spreading Open-source GIS software, with a special "Application Programming Interface" (API) for geographic data processing and a user-friendly Graphical Interface. SAGA GIS supports raster data (e.g. digital terrain models, satellite images), vector data, and tables. The global development process yields a vast amount of application opportunities and an ever-growing number of sets of geoscientific methods and analysis tools, bundled in exchangeable Module Libraries.... read more

SAGA 2.0 Beta - Release Notes
Dear SAGA users,
...it is now about a year ago, when I decided to start to develop a new SAGA version. This seemed to be necessary for several reasons, mainly related to the graphical user interface (GUI) and the data management. Also there occured a number of problems and limitations using the MFC and the MS-Windows API. So it was a good time to choose an alternative GUI platform too. My first choice became the wxWidgets C++ cross platform GUI toolkit (http://www.wxwidgets.org), a comprehensive and well matured toolkit with ports for various compilers and operating systems. Therefore you find now SAGA binaries for MS-Windows and Linux. Also there is a MS-Windows version compiled with the MinGW compiler (attention: because of incompatible class library export definitions this version is not compatible with the one compiled with the Microsoft compiler - use either one of the versions!).... read more

SAGA -- System for an Automated Geo-scientific Analysis -- a free Geographical Information System (GIS) is released in Version 1.0.
The SAGA API supports grid data like digital terrain models and satellite images, vector data, and tables.
This API makes it easy to implement new algorithms and exempts the developer from hassle programming overhead like user-interface design or file-io.
SAGA comes with a big collection of SAGA-Modules, in areas of terrain-analysis, geo-statistics, image processing and process simulation.
