[Jts-topo-suite-user] JTS Book Table of Contents From: Landon Blake - 2011-11-29 22:13 ```---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Landon Blake Date: Tue, Nov 29, 2011 at 2:11 PM Subject: JTS Book Table of Contents To: JTS Topology Suite Development I put together a preliminary table of contents for JTS, based on the organization of the code into packages. Please take a look and let me know what you think. If there is interest in tackling this project, I can start us a project on Wikibooks. I'm willing to contribute Chapter 1 and maybe also Chapter 2. I'd also be willing to produce a PDF of the contributed material using Scribus. I think the license for Wikibooks is GNU FDL. If we want to use the Creative Commons License we could host in the SurveyOS or JTS SVN repo. Here is the table of contents: Chapter 01: A Short History of JTS Chapter 02: The Basic Geometry Types - The Geometry Super Class - The Point Class - The LineString Class - The Polygon Class Chapter 03: Geometry Collections - The Multipoint Class - The MultiLineString Class - The MultiPolygon Class - The Geometry Collection Class Chapter 04: Spatial Indices - The QuadTree - The STR Tree - The KDR Tree - The Sweepline Index - The Binary Chain Index - The INterval Chain Index Chapter 05: Spatial Analysis - Algorithms - Operations Chapter 06: Linear Referencing Chapter 07: TINs Chapter 08: Input/Output Chapter 09: Adding Attributes to Create Simple Features Chapter 10: Topology and Graphs Chapter 11: Utility Code Chapter 12: Painting Geometries Landon ```

I think an open source JTS book is a great idea. However, I see that this was posed in 2011; what's the status, if any, of this book? Certainly if we make this a collaborative effort, then it increases the likelihood of getting done! I don't mind making some small contribution, myself. Cheers! Mark ```
 Re: [Jts-topo-suite-user] JTS Book Table of Contents From: Stefan Steiniger - 2012-11-28 13:24 ```Hi Mark, so no response from Landon.. mhm... I can forward him directly (or you). As fas I know he wrote a bit on geometry basics for the OSGeo journal or so while ago ... but not sure if there happend much more and how related that is. From my part, I also started end of last year with making an outline, which is vastly different to Landons - since I thought to cater for a student audience. Unfortunately, like with most projects of that sort, I have made it to an introduction and the section "What is GIS" - for people with a computer science background. Thought, the next sub-section on the JTS history should be easy as Martin wrote it already. Then, I got stuck because I moved to a different country, etc. My original idea was also to offer the chapters for free except for 2-3 key chapters, to make people buying it (maybe the funds could then be used for JTS (2.0) development by Martin... but who really makes that much money from books...). However - if I look at my time in the near future (new job???), I can't really see that I will make progress on it (...except some comes and gives me 40k\$ for a year to write it ;) But if others are willing to contribute. I can post my outline and my learning objectives (details for OpenJUMP based hands-on exercises are still missing). cheers from Santiago de Chile, stefan Am 25.11.12 21:33, schrieb Mark Coletti: > On Tue, Nov 29, 2011 at 5:13 PM, Landon Blake > > wrote: > > ---------- Forwarded message ---------- > From: Landon Blake > > Date: Tue, Nov 29, 2011 at 2:11 PM > Subject: JTS Book Table of Contents > To: JTS Topology Suite Development > > > > I put together a preliminary table of contents for JTS, based on the > organization of the code into packages.
