DotSpatial is an open source project focused on developing a core set of GIS and mapping libraries that live together harmoniously in the DotSpatial namespace working seamlessly with the .NET framework.
dotSpatial is envisioned as a set of geospatial data management, visualization and analysis extensions to the Microsoft .NET Framework. These low level libraries can be reused in other open source or proprietary software to supply GIS and mapping capabilities.
dotSpatial is developed by members of the broader OSGeo .NET developer community. Please join the OSGeo .NET mailing list here: http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/dotnet
The dotSpatial framework is expected to evolve around the following general design:
| Namespace || Source/Derived From || Status |
| System.Spatial.Data || Original Code + extension architecture for OGR and GDAL || Initial commit available with initial documentation |
| System.Spatial.Projections || Proj4/Proj4.NET || Initial commit available with initial documentation |
| System.Spatial.Desktop || MapWindow6 || Initial commit available with initial documentation |
| System.Spatial.Topology || Net Topology Suite || Initial commit available with initial documentation |
| System.Spatial.Analysis || WhiteBox and MapWindow || not committed yet |
| System.Spatial.Positioning || GeoFrameworks 2 and GPS.NET 3 || developer tidyup plans to commit |
