Montreal Code Sprint 2011 : The Rendez-vous of the Tribes

Sending out a clear message that we'd like to see members of all OSGeo tribes (C/C++, Java, JavaScript, C#, etc.) join forces for the advancement of OSGeo technologies. Last year's sprint in NYC helped foster synergies between the tribes and we want this to continue even stronger.


  • 6.0 Release work (documentation, polishing and bug fixes)
  • SVG Symbols (assefa, zak, thomas)
  • rendering features with offset + leader (assefa, zak, thomas)
  • Outputformat refactoring (don't create and initialize all default outputformats at each request) (thomas)
  • Text rendering => always use labelpathobj (thomas)
  • rasterBufferObj: premultiplied or not? (thomas, frankw)
  • INSPIRE View Services support for WMS (TomK, assefa, etc.)
  • Ruby/SWIG MapScript (JimK)


  • 3D index issues outline support whether we'll have one or 2 types of parallel indices (prefer one type)
  • 9.1 KNN GIST are we going to do or punt to 2.1
  • Left over issues with EMPTY and new more ISO compliant WKT display of geometries
  • Make geometry_columns a view rather than table - harmonize legacy with new to cause least pain

PostGIS raster

  • Ticket fixes
  • ST_SetRotation & ST_Rotation
  • pl/pgSQL script fixes
  • ST_MapAlgebra optimization & neighbourhood
  • ST_Intersection optimization & GDAL Polygonize with real values


  • SWIG/Ruby bindings? (JimK)


  • mpg to discuss/demonstrate the Stage model that libPC sets up
  • hobu to talk about technologies, intents, and targeted platforms for libPC
  • mpg to give a small code walkthrough via projector
  • Try to get FrankW to discuss features/failures/successes of both GDAL and OGR's driver models
  • Get hg access for all sprint participants
  • hobu to stand up with Trac/HG/Sphinx
  • Bootstrap people building libPC on their own computers (writing docs as we go)
  • Crib up the text, MG4, and BAG drivers
  • Add CMake detection for MG4
  • Plan for adding octree libpc::Stage
  • Investigate and discuss using boost-style traits for class description
  • Investigate Point Cloud Library's (PCL) template-driven point classes and their applicability and/or adaptability for libPC.
