Plugins for OpenJUMP

Editing Plugins (*)

  • New ISA 2.5 tools for OpenJUMP deriving from SkyJUMP. Download [1] and place it in your \OpenJUMP /lib/ext folder. Download also a modified workbench-properties.xml and place it in your OpenJUMP /bin folder to enables the individual tools on OJ menus.
    • KML datasource
    • Text Block Annotation and Interactive Buffer, on Editing toolbox
    • Auto Assign Attribute , Clip To Fence , Orthogonalize on Tools menu.

  • CAD Extension for OpenJUMP, [2] . A large set of tools for drawing, modifying features and to calculate lenghts, areas and angles. It is designed to work with DXF PlugIn on inport/export CAD files
  • Measurement tools, [3] . A set of measurement tools to compute coordinates, lenght, area, anglee and azimuth
  • Set Attributes extension : A tool to open toolboxes containing customized buttons to set one or more attributes values to selected features.

The extension is included in PLUS version of OpenJUMP, but you can also download it at [4]

(*) Those tools have been mostly included in OpenJUMP PLUS edition)

Raster Image Plugins

Since version 1.6 OpenJUMP provides a raster support to display a large number of image formats (see Working with Raster page). Since version 1.4 an improved image plugin from Project PIROL: download here has been integrated into OpenJUMP,currently supports GeoTIFF, TIFF, JPG, PNG, GIF, FLT float and ASC ascii grid.

There are other raster plugins. Some of them require Java Advanced Imaging (JAI) libray. JAI for different platforms can be found here

  • another fine image plugin, based on GDAL, is the TANATO plugin from SIGLE: download here - which support apart from several image formats (ECW, TIF, JPG as Raster Catalog Data) the generation of TIN and TIN-Flow calculations (note: the page is in french!)

Print Plugins

  • Basic Print PlugIn supporting also multiple sheets by Geoff ( It should work also with JUMP - It requires iText library to work (*)

(*) (included in OpenJUMP PLUS edition)

Database Plugins

  • DB Query allows OpenJUMP users to give arbitrary database queries to retrieve and display geographic feature sets (see documentation) from PostGIS, MySQL, SpatialLite and Oracle databases. See also the tutorial "OpenJUMP with SpatialLite".
  • PostGIS database connector (download) : see also Installing Plugins
  • PostGIS plugin (download) by Erwan Brocher. See also Erwan's wiki page for the description
  • iSQLViewer: SQL front end by Erwan Brocher(download).
  • ArcSDE database reader (as separate download but also contained in ISA 2.0 tools package - see below)
  • Oracle database reader (download)
  • SpatiaLite database reader (download)
  • pgRouting network analysis with pgRouting and PostgreSQL(download)
  • MonetDB datastore plugin allows spatial data to be retrieved from MonetDB (download & information)

Note, an introduction on how to use OpenJUMP with PostGIS can be found in OpenJUMP 1.3 tutorial presented at OGRS 2009 (see the Downloadable Tutorials and Guides section of the wiki or our download area on SourceForge). Also the book "PostGIS in Action" contains a chapter on that.

Other Dataformats

  • DXF Driver Read/Write dxf files into/from OpenJUMP.
  1. (*) from Michael Michaud - download
  2. Another dxf plugin from Dante and Rammi:
  • CSV Driver(*) - Read/Write files in the csv format, or other character delimited values format (part of OpenJUMP PLUS, separate plugin download).
  • OpenStreetMap osm file Driver(*) - Reads OpenStreetMap xml files saved as *.osm: plugin download. Note, completeness of conversion from OSM primitive to OpenJUMP features is not guaranteed. Please check the log (Window>Log). Also, *.osm files contain data in geographic coordinates (in WGS84: EPSG:4326), so you may need to utilize the CTS extension to convert that data into your local cartographic projection. For loading a file, OpenJUMP should have assigned twice the memory of the file size, e.g. for 700MB *.osm file 1.6GB RAM assigned to OJ are recommended.
