 Welcome to Apache SIS <http://sis.apache.org>
 =============================================
 
-SIS provides data structures for geographic data and associated metadata
-along with methods to manipulate those data structures. The SIS metadata
-module forms the base of the library and enables the creation of metadata
-objects which comply with the model of ISO 19115 series of standards.
-The SIS referencing module enable the construction of geodetic data structures
-for geospatial referencing such as axis, projection and coordinate reference
-system definitions, along with the associated operations which enable the
-mathematical conversion of coordinates between different systems of reference.
-The SIS storage modules will provide a common approach to the reading and
-writing of grid coverages applicable to simple imagery as to many dimensional
-data structures.
+SIS is a Java language library for developing geospatial applications.
+The library is an implementation of GeoAPI 3.0.1 interfaces and can be used
+for desktop or server applications. Apache SIS provides data structures for
+geographic features and associated metadata along with methods to manipulate
+those data structures. The SIS metadata module forms the base of the library
+and enables the creation of metadata objects which comply with the ISO 19115
+international standard. The SIS referencing module enable the construction of
+geodetic data structures for geospatial referencing as defined by ISO 19111
+standard, along with the associated operations which enable the transformation
+of coordinates between different reference systems. The SIS storage modules
+provide a common approach to the reading and writing of metadata, features and
+coverages applicable to simple imagery as to many dimensional data structures.
