Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "August2010" page has been changed by chrismattmann.
The comment on this change is: add SIS report.


  = SIS =
- (project add text here)
+ Apache SIS is a toolkit that spatial information system builders or users can use to build
applications containing location context. This project will look to store reference implementations
of spatial algorithms, utilities, services, etc. as well as serve as a sandbox to explore
new ideas. Further, the goal is to have Apache SIS grow into a thriving Apache top-level community,
where a host of SIS/GIS related software (OGC datastores, REST-ful interfaces, data standards,
etc.) can grow from and thrive under the Apache umbrella.
+ Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of?
+ Not at this time
+ Community progress since the last report
+ There was a few projects undertaken in Chris Mattmann's CSCI 572: Search Engines and Information
Retrieval class regarding SIS, in particular, one by Nga Chung, wherein which she implemented
a full R-tree spatial index in Java from scratch, as well as bounding box and point-radius
queries. Nga has kindly signed up for the mailing list, and allowed for the contribution of
her code to SIS. In addition, a few other projects included representation of spatial data
in GeoRSS format (from William Quach, another 572 student), and those projects will be packaged
up and contributed also. SIS'ers need to follow up after the meeting with ESRI to determine
if they are interested with participating in the community. Much of the other activity continues
to be from the mentors and committers.
+ Project progress since last report
+ SIS was voted into the Incubator by the IPMC on February 21, 2010.
+ Chris Mattmann led the development of the SIS website and stood the site up at,
completing SIS-2. The code prepared in CS572: Search Engines and Information Retrieval at
USC will be packaged up and attached to JIRA and committed to SIS. In particular, the R-tree
implementation as well as the point/radius and bounding box implementations. The GeoRSS code
will also be packaged up and contributed to SIS. Patrick O'Leary is investigating map projections
and coordinate systems including transformations to Polar coordinates which should help on
the observational data side.
