Riyafa Abdul Hameed commented on ASTERIXDB-1371:
------------------------------------------------

Hi,
I am a final year Computer Science and Engineering undergraduate at University of Moratuwa.
I would like to work with Apache AsterixDB for this year's GSoC. I am familiar with JSON and
I have contributed to Apache VXQuery during last year's GSoC where I was involved with the
issue VXQUERY-178 to support JSONiq for VXQuery. 
I have currently set up AsterixDB as in [1] and am attempting to familiarize with the code
base and am looking into GeoJSON format. Please kindly help me get started with the task and
to prepare a good proposal by directing me to beginner issues that I can try fixing or things
I should be learning to understand the project better.

Thank you. 
Riyafa

> We current support point, polygon, circle, and rectangle. The GIS world has more data
shapes as described in [Well-know text|https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Well-known_text]. [PostGIS|http://postgis.net/docs/manual-2.2/using_postgis_dbmanagement.html#RefObject]
is also a good referecne. It will be very nice we can support all standard spatial object
internally and can parse/format the spatial object in a "well-known" way. e.g. well-know format
or [geojson|http://geojson.org/] format
