+DCW-GMT for Debian
+-------------------
+
+The gmt-dcw Debian package includes the DCW-GMT basemap of the world in
+NetCDF 4 format for use with GMT 5.
+
+The DCW-GMT homepage [1] describes the project the origin of the data as
+follows:
+
+"
+ The Digital Chart of the World (DCW) is a comprehensive 1:1,000,000 scale
+ vector basemap of the world. The charts were designed to meet the needs of
+ pilots and air crews in medium-and low-altitude en route navigation and to
+ support military operational planning, intelligence briefings, and other
+ needs. For basic background information about DCW, see the Wikipedia entry
+ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Chart_of_the_World).
+
+ DCW-GMT is an enhancement to DCW in a few ways: (1) it contains more state
+ boundaries (the largest 8 countries are now represented), and (2) the data
+ have been reformatted to save space and are distributed as a single deflated
+ netCDF-4 file. The raw files used to build dcw-gmt.nc came from the
+ Princeton University Digital Map and Geospatial Information Center,
+ accessible via website http://www.princeton.edu/~geolib/gis/dcw.html;
+ however, the DCW access seems to have disappeared. Other sites with DCW data
+ include the GeoCommunity at http://data.geocomm.com/readme/dcw/dcw.html.
