> Implement a ShapeFile data store
> --------------------------------
>                 Key: SIS-100
>                 URL:
>             Project: Spatial Information Systems
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Shapefile
>            Reporter: Martin Desruisseaux
> Apache SIS needs a class for reading Shapefiles, and an other class for writing Shapefiles.
The Shapefiles specification is available there:
> At the time of writing (May 2013), there is no infrastructure in Apache SIS for building
such reader and writer. There is no {{DataStore}} interface, no {{Feature}} implementation,
no {{Geometry}}, no {{CoordinateReferenceSystem}}. A Shapefiles reader and writer could only
be a simple initial draft *which is guaranteed to break compatibility in future SIS releases*.
If a volunteer wishes to experiment Shapefiles, it could be done as below:
> * Ignore (for now) any possible generic base, since there is no {{DataStore}} interface
yet. API would be specific to the Shapefiles reader and writer.
> * Use (for now) {{java.util.Map}} instead of {{Feature}}, since the later are not yet
> * Use (for now) directly the ESRI open source geometry library, since there is no ISO
geometries in SIS yet.
> * Ignore coordinate reference systems.
> Of course all the above would need to be revisited *in incompatible way* as more SIS
services become available.
