Is there a definition on how lines connect vertices in the shapefile format? In the simplest case, imagine a line with only 2 points, from 40,-118 to 40,-112 - that's somewhere random in the US - ...
I am currently developing an OpenLayers mapping site. Measurements can be made using a line tool, and an area tool. Both of these are currently set to calculate geodesic measurements as outlined in ...
What kinds of line segments/edges require high accuracy in a true surface-of-the-ellipsoid representation?
I've been musing (and doing prototype coding) for a 'projection free' geographic codebase with your basic point, line & polygon primitives. Rather than dealing with all the sacrifices that come ...
I'm looking for a FREE C# class, library or set of functions that will allow me to generate a geodesic linestring (or array of vertices, whatever) from two decimal degree points. I've found ...
I have some polygons which can be anywhere in the world. I would like to compute their areas. The GeoDjango docs for GEOSGeometry.area don't specify whether it is geometric or geodesic area, but ...
I have a map, the centre of that map (centrepoint) is = -37,175 ( gps) I know the zoom of the map = 13 I know the size = 320x320px I know there is 111111m in a degree of latitude and a varying degree ...
I have a feeling that the answer is going to be 'You can't do that without some very complex coding' but I thought I'd go for it anyway. I recently asked a question on how to create a Polyline Buffer ...
