http://trac.osgeo.org/csmap/ points to http://trac.osgeo.org/csmap/wiki/HowToGetTheSourceCode which seems to indicate there is no release of the CS-Map code, so you'll be building/installing from SVN. However, like the previous poster, I agree that you may be better off *not* using CS-Map, and using poj.4 at this time. CS-Map is a recently open sourced project, and thus is still (in my estimation) in a relative untested state of its current incarnation. proj.4, has been a relatively stable project over the past long while, and is probably slighly more tested in its current state. (And it has releases and binaries for many packages due to this...) > 2) FDO 3.3.1 currently supports ArcSDE 9.2. DOES FDO 3.3.1 ALSO SUPPORT > ArcSDE 9.3? IF NOT WHEN WILL THAT HAPPEN? I'd recommend this question isbest directed to the DO list rather than included along with these other questions on this list. > 2) I need the ability to buffer features and cannot find a way to do this > using FDO. WHAT OSGeo TOOLS ARE AVAILABLE FOR BUFFERING FEATURES WHOSE > OBJECTS ARE COMPATABLE WITH FDO? I would typically use GEOS/OGR for that. I have no idea aabout its compatibility with FDO, but I wouldn't be that hopeful.
