Approach for writing this book

We will start writing this book by listing practical problems and then identifying tools for solving those problems. As the list of problems increases they should be organized into groups etc.

We'd like to develop this page somehow coordinated with the Programming_Languages_Project

GPS related

  • Problem: Share GPS data between applications
    • Subproblem: Parse GPX
    • Explanation: GPX is an XML application for GPS data. Parsing gives us the GPS data.
  • Problem:
    • Subproblem: GeoTag Media
    • Explanation:
  • Problem:
    • Subproblem: Track logs
    • Explanation:


Use case Description Perl Ruby Python
Parse GPX What is GPX? Perl based solution Ruby based solution PyGPX
GeoTag Media RDFWeb geoloc_media.pl (original geoloc_media) Ruby? Python?
Track logs Geo::Track::Log Ruby Python

Editing geospatial data

  • Problem: Editing shapefile
  • Notes: This may mean adding, deleting, or changing the vertices of the geometries; editing the attribute data; or editing the schema
    • A solution:
