Re: [GSOC 2014] GIS Enhancement


Hi, Bang.

I think yes, the third coordinate operations should be implemented in that tool MariaDB is going to support that later anyway and we can specify the SQL syntax
and other ways to input 3d points now.

Best regards.

Hi everybody.

I am Honam Bang, a researcher of Korean Institute of Science Technology and I will be a master student of UCSD, USA from this Sep. I have been working with GIS research for about one year. Therefore, I decided to work on the 'GIS Enhancement topic' because I have a lot of interest for dealing with geospatial data.

My topic is 'implementing shp to sql command tool for MariaDB'. #MDEV-5813.

Most shptosql tools are enable to convert 3D coordinates as I know. The shape file white paper(http://www.esri.com/library/whitepapers/pdfs/shapefile.pdf) specifies a lot of 3D coordinates like POINT Z, MULTIPOINTZ which does not exist in MariaDB's Geometry type.

Does my topic include implementing those type converting as well?

Thank you
Honam Bang
