Subject [jira] [Commented] (SIS-183) Basic Geometry Operations
Date Sat, 11 Oct 2014 16:20:33 GMT


Martin Desruisseaux commented on SIS-183:

Thanks for bringing this topic. There is some elements of context:

* The geometry projection part (including referencing WKT parsing) is actually an independent
topic. This is the subject of {{sis-referencing}} module. This work exists in Geotk and its
port to {{sis-referencing}} is expected to resume this month.
* For two dimensional geometries in a Cartesian space, there is a library by [ESRI under Apache
2 license|] which can be used as a starting point.
This is the library currently used by the {{sis-shapefile}} module.
* For three dimensional geometries, or for two-dimensional geometries in a curved space like
Earth surface, we may have to write from scratch. However the ISO 19107 specification is under
revision and not yet completed.

> It would be very useful to have some basic geometry operations available, such as:
> - Read WKT, CSV, or shapefile into a geometry object in which the attribute tables are
stored as a HashMap, geom projection info etc.
> - Buffer, and intersect (contains, within, overlaps equivalent in RDBMSs) operations
via a method for passing in a geom to compare against a geom collection.
