Thanks, can you please add your name as a contributor (and/or a 
translator) in the trunk/doc directory.

If you haven't already found it, some of your future questions may be 
answered from pages which link from:

Yes, the udig data links are wrong at: 
I recently corrected them in the doc/en/quickstart/udig_quickstart.rst file.
The data is installed into /usr/local/share/data/udig-data/

Jody has noted that we we should use the natural earth dataset in the

You might want to help adjust quickstart to do this?

Some projects have produced their own dataset, but we prefer everyone to 
use the common dataset in order to save space.

You can download a VM here:

You can create a VM from an ISO here:
