     119=== Higher level API for C and C++ ===
     120
     121* There is a lot of code which many modules replicate over and over. A most prominent example is perhaps random access to raster values.
     122* The goal of the project is to make writing of modules in C and in C++ much easier and reduce duplication of code among the modules.
     123* Proposal must identify potential areas which need a higher level API and what features would the API provide in comparison to the current API (and when it would be just enough to extent the current API).
     124* Possible improvements include:
     125 * Random access to raster values which supports all-in-memory approach and hides implementation details such as row-based storage and separate segmentation.
     126 * Unified access to a series of maps (list, group, spatio-temproal dataset) which hides potential improvements towards direct support of NetCDF series or Rasdaman.
     127 * C++ interface leveraging C++ features such as operator overloading or support of STL algorithms.
     128 * Bridging of C++ RAII and try-catch with GRASS GIS C API exit and optional memory cleaning must be addressed.
     129* Language requirements: C and C++
