This question actually comes forth from an earlier question of mine .
A short introduction. I was writing a program that performs near analysis and creates buffers for a set of points. On my Linux Ubuntu machine this turned out to be really slow. Hence the earlier mentioned question of mine.
When running the same code on my OSX it was tremendously fast. At least n comparison to the results I was getting on Ubuntu.
Here are my results
Method | OSX | Linux Ubuntu ogr buffer | 0:00:01.434389 | 0:01:08.384309 sub string | 0:00:19.714432 | 0:00:10.048649 sorted set | 0:00:01.239999 | 0:00:00.600773
So my question really is: why are there such great performance difference with OGR?
