GeoTools : Coverage Data Access Central


December 20, 2005

This page is outdated. I'm using it because it was a placeholder in the old wiki page schema and I was thinking to conserve namespace on the wiki. Currently, the only topic of merit is ISO 19123 progress and future plan. Come back later.

Have a nice day. (smile)


The relationship between Geotools and J2SE ImageIO requires refinement before too much more code is written. Specifically, the automated discovery and selection of a data source's dimensionality is not necessarily a geographic function. The way to get the most reuse out of code is to provide the most functionality at the most general level possible. In the case of ImageIO and Geotools, this would mean adding descriptive and control capabilities to ImageIO and utilizing this functionality from within Geotools. In this manner, multidimensional plugins written for use with Geotools would have a much wider audience, and multidimensional data sources unrelated to Geotools might plug directly in.
