@dreieck: The library is intentionally distributed without data files. The provided scripts allow the user to choose which data files to download and where to place them. The data package would be quite restrictive in this respect.

Hm, trying to use MagneticField-executable results in a missing file:

Error reading wmm2020: Cannot open /usr/local/share/GeographicLib/magnetic/wmm2020.wmm

They could be downloaded with geographiclib-get-magnetic, but can a geographiclib-data-package be provided that provides the data via package management?

Package updated with static build enabled

Please add -DGEOGRAPHICLIB_LIB_TYPE=BOTH cmake flag so we get both static and dynamic library

Thank you rosseti ;-)

Post-install info about the data files has been added.

Both gravity and magnetic models are the additional data for the GeographicLib, and the user have to decide which of them wants to use (if any). PKGBUILD is not the right place for it, I think.

Ok but why not puting it in PKGBUILD ?

@kikislater: Please see

"For Linux and Unix systems, GeographicLib provides a shell script geographiclib-get-geoids (typically installed in /usr/local/sbin) which automates the process of downloading and installing the geoid data."

Geoids are missing !
