Description : Global Self-consistent Hierarchical High-resolution Geography (GSHHG)
GSHHG is a high-resolution shoreline data set amalgamated from two databases:
Global Self-consistent Hierarchical High-resolution Shorelines (GSHHS) and
CIA World Data Bank II (WDBII). GSHHG contains vector descriptions at five
different resolutions of land outlines, lakes, rivers, and political
boundaries. This data is for use by GMT, the Generic Mapping Tools.
This package replaces gmt-gshhs and is required for GMT 5, it will be
maintained along with the other gmt packages in the Debian GIS team.
