Frank Warmerdam is on this list, so I'm awaiting his comments on the structure and his proposed structure.
I think Frank, is trying to build a library for PG that will follow the OpenGIS spec very closely. Our goals are very similar, but I have some problems with OpenGIS. I hope that our devs will help each other, by sharing code.
My problems (in short):
-OpenGIS is 2D vector
-OpenGIS uses Well known Projection Systems which are VERY limited in definition
-OpenGIS uses a schema which does not support metadata as drafted by ISO, ANZLIC, FGDC and others...
-I have problems to understand database schemas, so I made mine...
-OpenGIS has no extension for Raster data
-I'm too slow on this project
-I think it is time that the OpenSource community shows who is making the standards (I'm megalo isn't it?)
