JTS Testbuilder, an application for testing JTS functions, is available on Windows and I use it quite regularly. Are there anything like this on Linux? Does GEOS have anything similar to this on linux?

JTS Testbuilder is a java program: It works on linux as well. You only need to launch the testbuilder.sh file in the jts-1.xx/bin folder.

i installed JTS 1.11 from software center in ubuntu..where can i find this folder? –  vinayan Feb 17 '13 at 8:35
The command 'locate testbuilder.sh' will tell you where it is. –  julien Feb 17 '13 at 8:47
OK. apparently, when installing the ubuntu JTS package, the testbuilder.sh file is not present. Try to use a JTS downloaded from sourceforge.net/projects/jts-topo-suite/files/latest/download –  julien Feb 17 '13 at 8:59
i downloaded from the link you mentioned..now it works fine..thanks a lot.. –  vinayan Feb 17 '13 at 9:17
