GeoTools is an open source (LGPL) Java code library which provides standards compliant methods for the manipulation of geospatial data, for example to implement Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The GeoTools library implements Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) specifications as they are developed, in close collaboration with the GeoAPI and GeoWidgets projects. The capabilities of Geotools are presented in the feature list.
Geotools is used by a number of projects including Web Feature Servers, Web Map Servers, and desktop applications, as is described on this page. Some screenshots of Geotools in action are also available.
The 2.2.x branch of GeoTools will be the stable branch until 2.3 is released. The current release of this branch is the release candidate 2.2.0.
The 2.3.x branch of GeoTools aims to improve the handling of imagery, and collaboration with the OSGEO foundation. Work on 2.3 has settled down, a providence review has been completed, and docunmentation tasks reamin. A release candidate is expected for September.
A future branch planned for GeoTools will improve the support for more complex 'features' than the current 'feature'. This will be a transition from a 'Simple Features for SQL' data model to a ISO feature model as used in GML3.
