Description: Renders non-Earth map datasets

A Web Map Service (WMS) implementation, much like MapServer and GeoServer.
It solves issues with rendering global non-Earth datasets. It has fast and
accurate rendering of global datasets, support for the JMARS projection,
for IAU2000 spatial reference systems and accurate rendering of non-linear
projections.

It uses the LROC Science Operations Center (SOC) which maintains a global
dataset that has a released size of over 200TB and continues to grow.

Lunaserv supports multiple planetary bodies at the same time and can
render the following layer types:
    Raster basemaps
    Vector (db, flat file, or shapefile)
    Day/night shading
    Annotation
    Grid
    Topography based illumination
    Raster footprints
    Numeric (JMARS only)

Lunaserv also includes a configurable WMS front-end that supports
switching planetary bodies and projections on the fly. This interface uses
OpenLayers as the map request/layout engine with some extra code to
support projection changing and reading layer configurations from a YAML
configuration file. The configuration file can specify one or more
planetary bodies, projections, and a variety of layer options for each
body.


It appears to bundle jquery, OpenLayers (BSD license), js-yaml,
jquery-ui-touch-punch (MIT or GPLv2)... See COPYING. It's split into
multiple archives some described as having certain sections so not
everything in COPYING s included in every archive.

I lead up the team for Lunaserv; for the upstream author, go with "LROC 
SOC <lunaserv@ser.asu.edu>"

A few of us on the team have done Debian packing work before; although 
none of us are currently on the Debian team, but if whoever picks this 
request up needs something from upstream, we're happy to help.

Also, Lunaserv 3 will be out in the next couple of weeks and it should 
be much easier to deploy than the current version as it drops the old 
rails dependency and moves to rack.  It also simplifies the database 
stuff (the minimum setup in Lunaserv3 will require no database at all).
