Hello GIS Toolkit people,
I'm a developer on the http://geotools.sourceforge.net project, adding Web
Feature Server and Web Map Server functionality to it.
I've just had a quick look at the GIS Toolkit and have been impressed with
what you have to offer.
It would be great if we could join energies and share some of our source
code. (For instance, we have not got the an editor interface).
At Geotools, we are currently restructuring our design to make it more
modular, and base our types on the Java Topology Suite (JTS).
If the GIS Toolkit were to support the JTS types, then we can the build
common Data Sources and share them.
We are also looking into building projection libraries, which it seems you
are doing too, so we should be able to share that work too.
I'm interested to know:
1. Are you interested in joining forces in some way.
2. Have you got ideas on how you want to develop further, something like a
3. A bit of history about your project. Who are you, where have you come
4. What Country/City/Timezone you are in, and whether you are interested in
joining us for an IRC meeting some time. (We are currently meeting once a
week on IRC). I will forward details of our next one. You are welcome to
I look forward to hearing from you soon,
