The GeoSOA research group (http://geosoa.scg.ulaval.ca) of the Centre
for Research in Geomatics at Laval University, Quebec City, Canada is
proud to announce the release of a first version of GeoKettle as an open
source contribution.

GeoKettle is a "spatially-enabled" version of Pentaho Data Integration
(Kettle, http://kettle.pentaho.org). Pentaho Data Integration (Kettle)
is a powerful, metadata-driven ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) tool
dedicated to the aggregation of different data sources in
datawarehouses. It is part of the open source BI (Business Intelligence)
software suite designed by Pentaho (http://www.pentaho.com). 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).

GeoKettle v2.5.2-20080531 is still in alpha version but demonstrates the
potential of this ETL tool dedicated to spatial datawarehouses and
Spatial OLAP (SOLAP).
