So far I have not met a great deal of direction on the production of
GeoTools content (but I had a good time being confused).
So we may as well just start - from what I can figure out the following
would be useful:
- OSGeo is doing them already with some success, not sure how we sign up
but I would love hear what Gabriel has been up to :-)
- visual walk through w/ commentary on any of our demos. ie from
maven.pom to eclipse to run
- architecture or design material showing how the library fits in the middle
- goal is to allow budding projects to steal good looking pictures that
happen to have geotools in them
PDF - White Papers
- short technical papers, buzz word happy to show up in search results
- get your name out there and take geotools along as your example
Please note that this is more of an opportunity for those seeking fame /
glory / or biz contacts. In terms of the library we simply need user
documentation. As a community we could hope to gather a few more users,
and at best some developer interest based on white papers.
Thought: if we are moving to pdf files generated from DocBook for user
documentation (rather then free form wiki), perhaps allowing people a
descriptions of themselves and contact information would be a nice way
to motivate content creation.
