2008 Ideas List

These are suggestions. Students are encouraged to come up with their own ideas as well.

  1. Implement GeoPNG/GeoJPEG by embedding coordinate system and geotransformation information (possibly in GML) as chunks in PNG and JPEG files (see GML JP2 for a model of how this might be done).
  1. PNG Driver (using libpng)
  1. OGR WFS read (or read/write) driver using existing OGR GML driver for feature parsing.
  1. Implementation of alternative driver for GML 2 and GML 3 using Expat XML Parser
  1. Implementation of read-only WFS driver using GML driver based on the Expat XML Parser.
  1. Develop a driver for GeoRSS
  1. Develop a driver for OpenStreetMap protocol
  1. Develop a driver for IBM DB2 and its Spatial Extender
  1. Extend GeoJSON driver with cashing capabilities when accessing remote datasource.
  1. Development of Java bindings.
  1. GDAL/OGR for Windows CE: porting new drivers
  1. Development of C# language SWIG bindings for .NET Compact Framework and creating test applications for it.
  1. Creating an ASP.NET multithreading testbed for the GDAL C# bindings, by using the thread pool approach.
  1. Development of bindings for new programming languages: Lua, Ada (GNAT), put your favorite language here
  1. Development of GDAL Read/Write? Driver for tiles, derived from GDAL2Tiles utility.
