CS-Map – coordinate system libraries

Wednesday 15:00 - 15:25
Session 3, Track 8, Slot 1

CS-Map is often used as a reference but has not been as widely adopted as proj4. This presentation describes how CS-Map has been used in a distributed geospatial database for big data.

The presentation describes the benefits of CS-Map, in particular its whole earth support and also it disadvantages, primarily it is process locked.

The aim of the presentation is to demonstrate that having more than one coordinate system library is a good thing and to encourage development of coordinate system libraries.
