Justin, This is the discussion list for the OSGeo, a non-profit organization that supports open source GIS software development. It is not the user list for Mapguide. (This is a common mistake.) If you want an answer to your question you should find and post to the Mapguide user list.

A convert! Welcome Jennifer. I can't speak for GRASS, but I know that OpenJUMP (http://jump-pilot.sourceforge.net/OpenJUMP.html) could be compared to the old 3.X Arcview. It has limited printing abilities at this point in time, but I don't think there is a better cross-platform tool for basic

[OSGeo-Discuss] Java Collaboration...Again

The Java collaboration has reared its ugly head again... Some programmers from GeoTools, OpenJUMP, degree, and Open Plans are talking about the possibility (probably remote) of a shared library for SRS or CRS definitions and transformations. The idea wouldn't be to scrap existing libraries

Frans, Perhaps I can help you understand. As far as I know the only two official OSGeo projects for the Java programming language are gvSIG and GeoTools. OpenJUMP isn't an official OSGeo project, but I hope that it is one day. :] Even though it isn't yet a project I try to stay active in

[OSGeo-Discuss] Research For Shared Java CRS Library

A fellow OSGeo member suggested that I move a topic from a private e-mail discussion to this mailing list. I have been talking with a couple of the guys from GeoTools, a couple of the guys from deegree, and a couple of guys from OpenJUMP about a shared Java CRS library. There are a lot of

Thanks for the input Justin. I agree simplicity (and the broad adoption that results from simplicity) is a primary goal. We shouldn't let GeoAPI stand in the way of that. Does anyone know how much of the existing GeoTools code is actually based on the CRS interfaces in GeoAPI? Is anyone besides
