I have in the past used OpenEV to have a fast preview of geotiff files. I tried to install it in Ubuntu 16.04, but it isn't in the ubuntu-gis ppa nor could I find another simple way to install it. The software seems to be abandoned. I know I can also pipe raster files into qgis, but qgis is often too heavy for a quick look and other Image viewers (e.g. Eye of Gnome) often struggle with geotiff files. So i was wondering if there is a simple FLOSS alternative for openEV that can be used in newer versions of Ubuntu and can be used in the command line.
ImageMagick has a nice simple tool to display images (including geotiff) from the command line:
Use left mouse button to display command window, right mouse button to display popup menu. There is a Pan icon overview window to pan to a part of the image. To install imagemagick:
sudo apt-get install imagemagick
