Excuse my ignorance - here goes,
I am building a GIS web application using FDO 3.3.1, C#.net, MS Virtual
Earth, and Silverlight. As I am not sure of the relationship between OSGeo
and FDO, I will post these questions here:
1) I need to project coordinate systems (ex. WGS 1984 to state plane) and
cannot find a way to do this using FDO. WHAT TOOLS ARE AVAILABLE UNDER THE
OSGeo UMBRELLA TO MAKE PROJECTIONS. IF CS-MAP (recent donation from
AutoDesk) IS THE TOOL TO USE FOR PROJECTING COODINATE SYSTEMS, WHERE DO I
DOWNLOAD IT FROM?
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.
