About Geotools

Geotools is an open source/ free java GIS toolkit for developing standards compliant solutions. It seeks to implement OpenGIS Consortium (OGC) specifications as they are developed.

The GeoTools project is divided into separate modules, each of which implements a specific requirement. Only a subset of these modules is usually required to build an application based on Geotools2. Its modular architecture allows extra functionality to be easily incorporated.

GeoTools code is built using the latest Java tools and environments (1.4.2) and will continue to leverage the capabilities of future Java environments and official extensions when the technologies have been through the first maintenance cycle (i.e. version 1.x.1).

It is not the intention of the GeoTools 2 project to develop finished products or applications. However, it is the intention to interact and support other initiatives and projects which would like to use the GeoTools 2 toolkit to create such products.

If you are new to Geotools2 please read the Developers Guide.
