This is just a reminder about the fundraising drive aimed at improving
the PostGIS topology support in upcoming 2.0 release.
<< I will implement a Geometry to TopoGeometry importer in
PostGIS-2.0 but only if 10 other people will donate 250 euro. >>
The idea is that such a new function would make it extremely simple
for you to start using topology for your layers. As simple as:
UPDATE layer SET topo_geom = toTopoGeometry('layertopo', geom);
You could use the topological representation just to cleanup the data ,
to produce a pyramid of simplified versions or simply for storage and
exchange with other systems (topological GML output already available).
As of today 2 people have signed (thank you Andreas!, thank you Brian!).
It will take 8 more signatures to get it started.
The pledge deadline is December 20th.
Go postgis community, go !
