I also have functions to do that conversion in the OGR provider source
code. At least, I have WkbToFgf, and will soon be adding the reverse,
when I add write support to the OGR provider. Search for
OgrConnection::Wkb2Fgf in the attached file.

Subject: [fdo-dev] [Proposal] FGF<->WKB converters as common utils


I'd like to present small proposal about constituting FGF<->WKB
converters as common utilities.

Currently, I know about two procedures that can be used to convert
geometries between FGF and OGC WKB formats:

GeometryFromWkb() and WkbFromGeometry()

Both functions are coupled with MySQL driver for RDBI layer:


I see these functions may be used in PostGIS driver too, because PostGIS
also operates on OGC WKB format.
So, my proposal is to move Geometry.h and Geometry.c to a common
location, for example to:


What do you think?

p.s. Should I report such proposals to Project Tracker as 'enhancements'
or posting it here is fine?

Best regards
