Library Specific Documentation
Documentation for Code Contributors
The design architecture of DotSpatial follows two paradigms. The first is to separate the graphical user interfaces from the business logic. The second is to use a larger number of modules to increase code reusability, and allow access to parts
of the framework without requiring the entire thing. However, great energy is being spent to ensure the libraries work as well together as if they were all part of the same framework. The DotSpatial libraries follow the modular layout shown below.
Areas for which some end user documentation is available or under development appear in color. Areas which are not yet documented are gray. Additionally, see the specific resources for users and code contributors below.
