EasyGIS version 0.2 released on November 26, 2009. The release introduces a kind of maturity into the geo-data indexing. Implementation of quadtree index was a big milestone of the release. The feature added ability to handle large data sets and significant performance boost. Some more features are also worthy of mention: simple feature editor, distance measure tool, REST URI in UI and much more.
The EasyGIS team is pleased to present the first public release of open source Web 2.0 GIS. The version 0.1 presents a number of core features that allow you to share and publish geo localized data sets on the Web.
The EasyGIS 0.1 introduces a simple Web user interface for integration with external data and service providers to prepare so-called GIS mashups. Builtin support for Google Maps and OpenStreetMap serves as a good basement for thematic mapping.
All system services are exposed via RESTful API. With the REST Web resources, external clients can leverage the search and map rendering functionality embedding the resources into external applications and sites.
