[gdal-dev] About new GDAL/OGR drivers

FYI: I've added the required dependencies for the OpenJPEG and GeoPDF
drivers to all the development packages available at:
http://vbkto.dyndns.org/sdk/ so all the new drivers mentioned below can now
be tested against the recent GDAL SVN daily builds.
If you encounter any issues feel free to provide a feedback.

> I've neglected to mention a few of the GDAL/OGR drivers that I have
> added into trunk since 1.7 release. For those that like doing early testing
> and write useful bug reports so that those new drivers are in shape for the
> 1.8.0 release, here's a summary :
> GDAL drivers :
> * HF2/HFZ ( http://gdal.org/frmt_hf2.html ) : heightfield raster datasets
> can be compressed. Read/write support.
> * JP2OpenJPEG ( http://gdal.org/frmt_jp2openjpeg.html ) : another (the
> JPEG2000 driver, based on the open-source OpenJpeg library (BSD-licenced).
> More potential than Jasper with big images, but depends on an (yet)
> development branch of OpenJpeg. Read/write support.
> * XYZ ( http://gdal.org/frmt_xyz.html ) : to access simple gridded ASCII
> Read/write support.
> * GeoPDF ( http://gdal.org/frmt_geopdf.html ) : to extract both
> and rasterize PDF documents, that have georeferencing encoded in either of
> 2 current existing ways : the OGC GeoPDF encoding best practice (promoted
> TerraGo), or according to the Adobe Supplement to ISO 32000. Read-only,
> on poppler library (GPL-licenced)
> OGR drivers :
> * GPSBabel ( http://gdal.org/ogr/drv_gpsbabel.html ) : leverages the
> capabilities of the GPSBabel utility (GPL-licenced) to read/write many GPS
> * OpenAir ( http://gdal.org/ogr/drv_openair.html ) and SUA (
> http://gdal.org/ogr/drv_sua.html ) : 2 fairly equivalent and
> drivers to read text files describing Special Use Airspaces.
> * PDS ( http://gdal.org/ogr/drv_pds.html ) : another fairly specialized
> to extract tabular information from NASA PDS (Planetary Data Systems)
> * PGDump ( http://gdal.org/ogr/drv_pgdump.html ) : I believe I alrealdy
> mentionned that one. A write-only driver to generate SQL dump files that
> can be
> later injected into a live PostgreSQL instance. More or less similar to
> PostGIS shp2pgsql utility
> * WFS ( http://gdal.org/ogr/drv_wfs.html ) : a WFS/WFS-T client that can
> and write OGC WFS 1.0.0 and 1.1.0 services.
> The GML driver was also significantly upgraded, in particular to support
> GML3 geometries, more complex documents with non-flat structures and
> tweaks that help reading some GML application schemas (CityGML, AIXM)
> For more details about that... and the work done by all the others GDAL
> contributors, you can have a look at the preliminary NEWS :
> How testing those new stuff ?
> - Unix/Linux users : checkout GDAL svn trunk (or daily snapshot from
> http://gdal.org/daily/ ), configure, make, make install ;-)
> - Windows users : build from source, or use for example Tamas Szekeres'
> builds at http://vbkto.dyndns.org/sdk/ (Note that those builds don't
> currently include JP2OpenJPEG and GeoPDF due to the external dependencies).
> believe that gdal-dev in osgeo4w has also been recently updated with a
> 1.8.0dev snapshot.
