[OSGeo-Discuss] How to use DXF and GeoTools?

This type of question would be better for the Geotools user or developer mailing list:




I don't remember Geotools having direct support for DXF. Perhaps one of the Geotools programmers can respond. Otherwise, I would ask on the Geotools mailing list.


I know that OpenJUMP has a couple of DXF import plug-ins, so you could look at that source code. You might also check out the open source Java library for DXF files named Kabeja:




Kabeja doesn't directly support conversion of DXF entities to a simple feature representation, but this could be done with some work. If you decide to use Kabeja to create simple GIS features, please let me know. This is something I am interested in implementing and we might be able to work together on a simple library. If Geotools doesn't already have something similar I would be willing to submit it for approval as a module.

Subject: [OSGeo-Discuss] How to use DXF and GeoTools?


Hi folks!

i've been completed my subscription few minutes ago in order to ask about DXF and GeoTools.

I would like to develop a GIS which gets DXF and manage this with differents objects.
I would like to use GeoTools, but I don't know how to load a DXF into a Java Object.

Is that possible with GeoTools? How can I do that?

I'm grateful for some key or solution.
