Dear Landon Blake and OSGeo Incubator committee,

I would like to propose my open source library as an OSGeo Community project. The library is called Blink Raster and it is a C++ library aimed at efficient raster processing using basic and modern C++ idioms.  The library is based on my experience of developing Cellular Automata land use models, map comparison methods, neutral models and geostatistics for raster data. I would think that the primary users will be researchers in the field of environmental modelling, who require more flexibility than offered by GIS packages and more efficiency than offered by script based libraries. However, the functionality is quite fundamental, so who knows where it may be useful.

I think I meet all the requirements for a Community project. I still lack a community though :). I will introduce the library at FOSDEM 2018 and submitted an abstract for the UK:OSGeo event in March.

The project is hosted at Github: www.github.com/ahhz/raster<http://www.github.com/ahhz/raster>

Thank you for taking this into consideration, I'll be happy to hear from you.

With kind regards, Alex
