OpenJUMP is an open source Geographic Information System (GIS) written in the Java programming language.

OpenJUMP is an open source Geographic Information System (GIS) written in the Java programming language. It is developed and maintained by a group of volunteers from around the globe. OpenJUMP started as JUMP GIS designed by Vivid Solutions.
The current version can read and write shapefiles simple GML files as well as several other vector formats via plugins. It can also read from several spatial databases and write to postgis. It has support for images and for WFS and WMS web-services. So you can use it as GIS Data Viewer. However, its particular strength is the editing of geometry and attribute data. One can style the appearance of data in OpenJUMP's map display and can export the view to SVG. A growing number of vector analysis tools for topologic analysis and overlay operations is available too. OpenJUMP 1.8 adds coordinate reference system transforms and 1.9 adds several spatial databases reading capabilities as well as a lot of bug fixes and improvements. More info in our fatcs sheet.

OpenJUMP is a community driven fork of JUMP the "Java Unified Mapping Platform" GIS software. The original JUMP was developed by Vivid Solutions, released under GPL2 in 2003 and discontinued in 2006.

During 2004 already some enthusiastic developers joined together to enhance further the features of JUMP. They launched an independent development branch called OpenJUMP. The name gives credit to the original JUMP development, and at the same time describes the objectives of this project to be fully open to anyone wanting to contribute.

These days OpenJUMP is developed and maintained by (some few) volunteers around the globe. If you need functionality or even better want to contribute you are very welcome to contact us at our mailing list.
