Summary
Abstract: GeoKettle is a "spatially-enabled" version of Pentaho Data Integration (Kettle). Pentaho Data Integration (Kettle) is a powerful, metadata-driven ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) tool dedicated to the integration of different data sources for building data warehouses. It is part of the open source BI (Business Intelligence) software suite designed by Pentaho.

This special distribution of Kettle includes extensions which enable the use of geospatial (GIS) data. Like Kettle, GeoKettle is released under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL) license.

GeoKettle is a realization of the GeoSOA research group (headed by Prof. Thierry Badard, http://geosoa.scg.ulaval.ca) of the Department of geomatics sciences at Laval University, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.
