Consider adding Apache SIS

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/sis/presentations/FOSS4G-2013/abstract.txt The Geospatial integrity of geoscience software (GIGS) guidances is a set of tests developed by the authors of the well-known EPSG database. From their web site:
GIGS is a process developed in response to significant concern and user experiences of violations of geospatial integrity of data when using geoscience software, resulting in incorrect results, inconsistent understanding and misleading information for the user community.
This talk will cover the progress over the last 2 years in the implementation of GIGS tests in the GeoAPI conformance test suites. GeoAPI 3.0 is an OGC standard defining a set of Java interfaces that different libraries can implement. GeoAPI Conformance is a suite of JUnit tests that any GeoAPI implementation can leverage. The relationship with CITE tests will be briefly explained and the execution of GIGS tests will be demonstrated on Proj.4, the UCAR NetCDF library and Apache SIS.
The Apache Spatial Information System (SIS) is a top level project at the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). The goals of Apache SIS are to provide an ALv2 licensed Java toolkit and API that developers can leverage to build spatial information systems. This includes the OGC/ISO services commonly found in similar toolkits (metadata, referencing, queries, etc.) with particular attention given to the needs of geoscience applications and data integrity.
The SIS project has undergone successful incubation at the ASF in fall 2012. The project is both relatively young, and in the process of inheriting a relatively large code base from other projects. This situation gives to users an opportunity to influence the SIS design in an early stage and experiment now what may come later.
