-The talk will cover the history, motivation, goals, current status and
-future work for the Apache Spatial Information System (SIS) project. SIS
-is a top level project at the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the
-world's largest open source foundation and the home to over 3500
-contributors, 400 members, and 100+ of the most downloaded projects in the
-world including Apache HTTPD, Apache Hadoop, Apache Lucene/Solr, Apache
-Tika and other projects.
+Progress in testing integrity of geoscience softwares, and implementation in Apache SIS
 
-The goals of Apache SIS are to provide an ALv2 licensed Java toolkit and
-API that developers can leverage to build spatial information systems.
-This includes support for different coordinate reference systems; support
-for spatial querying; support for geometry and transformations and data
-representation of spatial data. SIS currently is aiming to be a reference
-implementation of the OGC Geo API 3.x standard.
+The Geospatial integrity of geoscience software (GIGS) guidances is a set of tests developed
+by the authors of the well-known EPSG database. From their web site:
 
-The project has undergone successful incubation at the ASF, having made 2
-releases, and we are working towards a 0.3 release that includes support
-for ISO-19115 metadata, ISO-19103 Conceptual schema language, and working
-towards ISO-19111 spatial referencing.
+    GIGS is a process developed in response to significant concern and user experiences
+    of violations of geospatial integrity of data when using geoscience software, resulting
+    in incorrect results, inconsistent understanding and misleading information for the user
+    community.
 
-SIS is also in the midst of a large contribution and assimilation of the
-GeoTK project, bringing it incrementally and in a community oriented
-fashion to the ASF. This is being led by Martin Desruisseaux.
+The talk will cover the progress of the last 2 years in the implementation of GIGS tests
in the
+GeoAPI conformance test suites. GeoAPI conformance is a suite of JUnit tests that any GeoAPI
+implementation can leverage. Execution of GIGS tests will be demonstrated on Proj.4, the
UCAR
+NetCDF library and Apache SIS.
+
+The Apache Spatial Information System (SIS) is a top level project at the Apache Software
Foundation
+(ASF). The goals of Apache SIS are to provide an ALv2 licensed Java toolkit and API that
developers
+can leverage to build spatial information systems. This includes the services commonly found
in
+similar toolkits (metadata, referencing, queries, etc.) with particular attention given to
the needs
+of geoscience applications.
+
+The SIS project has undergone successful incubation at the ASF in fall 2012. The project
is both
+relatively young, and in the process of inheriting a relatively large code base from other
projects.
+This situation gives to users an opportunity to influence the SIS design in an early stage
and
+experiment now what may come later.
