GIT or Subversion server access


Several GeoDMS projects are maintained at github or subversion servers. Contact us if you like to make us of this service for your project.

client tools

You can download the GeoDMS sourcecode and projects using a github/svn client, for example: TortoiseGit or TortoiseSvn.

Tortoise is a client tool, implemented as a Windows shell extension, resulting in some menu options added to the pop-up menu in the Windows Explorer.


To download a project, first browse in the Windows Explorer to your project folder. Next Activate the pop up menu option: SVN Checkout and configure the url of the project at the Subversion server in the textbox: URL of repositry, as shown in the next example:

Click OK to download the project in the Checkout directory.

After a Checkout, the directory is under version control. This is indicated by colored icons, indicating if the files are consistent with the last updated version. The two most important pop-up menu options available for directories under version control are:

  1. SVN Update: To update the directory with the latest version(revision) from our SVN server (for some projects you need to be authorized).
  2. SCN Commit: To commit your changes to a new revision at our SVN server (you need to be authorized).

The pop-up menu option TortoiseSVN offers more options, e.g., comparing your local version with a revision at our server. For more information on these options we refer to the TortoiseSVN manual.


In organizing your svn project, you often find the following concepts:

  • branches: forked versions
  • trunk: latest (mostly untested versions) are maintained here
  • tags: tagged revisions; revisions are tagged when major versions are made available You can Checkout the latest version from te trunk to for example “c:\svn\GeoDMS” or Export a tagged version to any directory
