Removing GME OGR driver

Reported by: Kurt Schwehr Owned by: Kurt Schwehr
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.1.0
Component: default Version: unspecified
Severity: normal Keywords:


Google Maps Engine (GME) is deprecated. This ticket will track the removal of the driver.


Note: The Google Maps Engine API is deprecated. Support for the
Google Maps Engine (GME) product ends on January 29th, 2016. You can
use your existing GME project as well as the GME API until that date. 
After January 29th, 2016, GME will be deactivated and the API will
therefore no longer be available.

The plan:

  • Remove the GME driver from GDAL svn-trunk head on 2015-Dec-11. (tomorrow w.r.t. to the ticket creation)
  • Remove the GME driver from the 1.11 and 2.0 branches 2016-Feb-02.

GME users will still be able to use the 1.11 and 2.0 branches and the existing release tars through the GME end-of-life.

I (Kurt) am coordinating with Wolf Bergenheim.
