graphics GEOS implements all the OpenGIS "Simple Features for SQL"
New port: graphics/geos implements all OpenGIS "Simple Features for SQL"
GEOS (Geometry Engine - Open Source) is a C++ port of the
Java Topology Suite (JTS). As such, it aims to contain the
complete functionality of JTS in C++. This includes all the
OpenGIS "Simple Features for SQL" spatial predicate functions
and spatial operators, as well as specific JTS topology
functions such as IsValid().
More precisely, GEOS is a library containing functions which
implement OpenGIS specifications concerning operations on
geometric objects. Despite its categorization in the graphics
subdirectory, it is more suitable in a "gis" category for
Geographical Information Systems software. I would like to
suggest the ports team to create such category because of
the so many free software available on the internet. Please,
look at www.freegis.org. I am working on porting several
of them to make FreeBSD ready-for-GIS. Feel free to contact
me for more information.
