- GeoTools is run by the Project Management Committee (PMC) (a group of volunteers who have made significant contributions to the project.)
- GeoTools is managed through an open development process, with public collaboration on new ideas . Project communication is open to all , and we welcome new contributions .
- In 2006, the GeoTools PMC decided to join the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo). Since that time, GeoTools has been following the incubation process of OSGeo.
These pages collect information about the GeoTools project and the developers who work on GeoTools. See this page for more information.
Geotools focuses on being a Java library, not an application - though we are pleased to interact and support the development of geospatial applications. The LGPL license is flexible enough for Geotools to be used to create both open source and commercial applications.
