Presentations at FOSS4G 2007

I'm giving two talks at FOSS4G 2007, which is taking place here in Victoria in September. The abstracts are:

The JTS Topology Suite: Tools, Tips & Techniques

The JTS Topology Suite is one of the most widely used geometry libraries for Java. This talk will review the standard geometry methods in JTS, with an emphasis on their finer details. Some of the additional algorithms and components which the library provides will be discussed. Tips for improving performance and techniques for accomplishing various kinds of geometric processing tasks will be presented. The talk will conclude with an preview of some potential future developments for JTS.

Automatic watershed delineation using open source Java

The B.C. Corporate Watershed Base is a large-scale database of hydrographic information built using open source products. This talk discusses the development of an open source system for automated delineation of watershed boundaries based on CWB hydrography and a terrain model.


If previous years are anything to go by, this conference should be very informative and energizing. See you there!

Hei Dr. JTS :)

..seems like everybody except me has now a blog (I think Larry Becker from SkyJUMP has one as well ;)

but on the subject: I hope you had some good literature on that stuff?
As far as i can remember also Erwan Bocher did work on TIN stuff with JTS (although he may not have had the problem of large databases) : http://www.projet-sigle.org/spip.php?rubrique17
as you are Canadian, I hope your French is better than mine)

we also use a nice graph lib (i needed an MST), that I connected with JTS, but it is unfortunately not free since it is done by some Guy at Ordnance Survey GB

cheers Stefan
