Collaboration?

It seems there is a call for collaboration between Java-based GIS projects like Jump and GeoTools, or uDig and gvSig every once in a while. This is an attempt to move from talk to action, since we usually just nod and say "yeah, we should collaborate" and it ends there.

Java-based GIS Projects

What components?

  • GeoAPI (OGC/ISO specifications)
  • GeoTools
  • JTS

Contacts

People from each team who are taking part in this discussion: ...

Problems

Licensing

  • LGPL vs GPL: everyone can use the LGPL code; GPL code will get less reuse

Ideas

  • draw a picture (who is using what right now?)
  • have an IRC meeting and figure out where we can collaborate
