Re: tutorial/guide for new user?

Hi Tom,

thanks for your interest in Debian GIS.  While I myself consider far
from beeing a GIS expert (just an OSMer) I try to at least answer a part
of your question.

If I'm not misleaded there is no such thing like a FAQ (but there should
be one).

When we discussed the layout of the Debian GIS tasks I was told that the
task "Workstation" (here you can see the content of this task -> [1])
contains everything you need in one rush.  I'm in general a friend of
finer granularity - but that's not a field where I can competently
discuss.  So if you install the gis-workstation metapackage you get
what you see listed at [1].  If you think some interesting applications
are m issing from this list - just drop us a note here.
Kind regards
