Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Questions about CS-Map, ArcSDE 9.3, buffer operations

2008-10-15 Thread surrounded

RESOLVED 2 and 3:

#2) I saw a post that indicated FDO 3.4 to be released (I believe) in Nov or
Dec 2008 will support ArcSDE 9.3.

#3) I used FWTools for the buffering functionality and then just converted
the geometry back to OSGeo.FDO geometry type. 

REGARDING MY QUESTION ABOUT PROJECTIONS:
I can use FWTools to do this also, but as of yet have not fully explored
this.

 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? 
 
 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?
 
 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?
 
 Thanks for the help.

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.
