Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Versioning of spatial data - Query

There is versioned data model for GeoServer and a WFS extension that
supports it. There is a crowdsourcing demo wrapping it up on open
layers if you are wanting to try it out. I cannot find the link for
you at the moment (site is under maintenance).

For the java developer there is an API available here

 Hello All,
 I wish to know, is there any system other than ESRI ArcSDE that supports
 versioning of GeoSpatial Data.
 If so could anyone point me to a possible solution in opensource and apart
 from write my own custom application/Workflow from scratch.
 I have tried google for solution but am not able make or break any idea to
 solve this, so with a confused mind I ask, could there be a possibility that
 SVN or any version control system (application/mechanics/functionality) be
 merged with PostgreSQL (Postgis) to create this solution.
 Rgds.

[OSGeo-Discuss] GIS Patent Applications

2009-07-30 Thread Landon Blake
There are a couple of GIS related patent applications online at
peer-to-patent. I have a hard time understanding patent applications,
but the first seems to deal with using an algorithm to calculate
neighborhood boundaries. The second seems to deal with using GIS
analysis to study damage (or potential damage) to a physical plant,
which could be a utility network according to the patent application.

 

I'm sure we have people more talented than I at understanding patent
applications. I am willing to help with a review of the patents if
others are interested, but I don't think I am capable of a review on my
own. I wanted to at least make our community aware of the patents.

I'll take a look.  By the way, a great source of information on patents can be 
found in http://www.groklaw.net/staticpages/index.php?page=20050402193202442.   
This page is huge, so you might want to start here:
