TerraLib enables quick development of custom-built geographical applications
using spatial databases. As a research tool, TerraLib is aimed at providing a
rich and powerful environment for the development of GIS research,
enabling the development of GIS prototypes that include new concepts such as
spatio-temporal data models, geographical ontologies and advanced spatial
analysis techniques. TerraLib defines a geographical data model and provides
support for this model over a range of different DBMS (MySQL, PostgreSQL,
ORACLE and ACCESS), and is implemented as a library of C++ classes and
functions, written in ANSI-C++.
This package contains development files for terralib.
