Ticket #454 (assigned enhancement)
|Reported by:||strk||Owned by:||strk|
Still looking for a good name, anyway the idea is to allow people to "split" a set of geometries in a table so that every component falling off a given X-value is X-shifted by a given amount. Tipical use is to make a wgs84 map visible as 0,360 rather than -180,180 or as whatever makes sense of a specific use (think pacific).
This was referred to as ST_ShiftLongitude on the mailing list http://postgis.refractions.net/pipermail/postgis-devel/2010-February/008886.html
But the "Longitude" part is misleading as it may be useful in mercator too for example..
