Hi Joyce,

Thanks for your email!

Nope it's not. The work currently contributed to SIS is the implementation of a quad tree
algorithm, and a location REST service around that quad tree to allow for point-radius and
bbox searches on it. The QuadTree can be loaded via GeoRSS URLs.

We are in the process of thinking through more design ideas for the next release of SIS. If
you have some ideas, we'd love to hear em'!

Take a look at the README.txt file distributed with the SIS 0.1-incubating release. There
are instructions on how to get a SIS WAR file up on Tomcat and start loading GeoRSS data into
it. There is also a demo.jsp file included in the WAR that shows you how to integrate the
location REST service with Google Maps just as a demonstration.

If you have further questions or are interested in helping out the project via patches, design,
etc., let us know. Thanks!
