Hello, Frank

Yes that was my point. I'm thinking about implementing SQLite support in OGR, 
for my embedded GPS mapping app, because Postgres feels a little bit cramped 
on my tiny iPAQ. If you're interested, take a look at that:


Yup, it's pulling data via OGR from a PostgreSQL database. I'm also using the 
OGRCoordinateTransformation class to reproject the data from geographic to 
cartesian (UTM) coordinates. The GUI is still a little bit crude, but it'll 
get better soon enough :) . I'll probably build a desktop version, using Qt 
instead of Qt/Embedded (should be an easy port to do) when my semester is 
over (along with my B. Eng. degree... Yes preciousssss iron ring, soon we 
ssshall be done with all theeesse vile lab assssignments. )
