Subject Re: Implementing GeoSPARQL
Date Tue, 03 Apr 2012 17:59:19 GMT
Hey Rob,

Thanks for the FYI on this. I will check it out. I would still like to figure out how to implement
GeoSPARQL 
with SIS if for nothing else than to harden SIS and to make it better in a SIS selfish way
:) I am out to make
it an awesome ALv2 licensed spatial implementation.

Regarding Parliament, what are you guys using for your spatial library? Is it something that
is ALv2? If not,
would you consider SIS as a potential alternative to whatever spatial library you guys are
using? Or, should I 
ask, are you part of the Parliament project?

Thanks for the FYI again.

Cheers,
Chris

implemented the property functions and filter functions for GeoSPARQL on top of our existing
spatial index.  For more info, you can check out [2].
