Jody Garnett

Jody Garnett has been working with Java since rocks began to cool, and now that
they have we can hack them with Java. GIS represents one of the last great
frontiers (along with BI) where the data volume lets everyone work on real
computer science. This blog will cover the Open Source Java GIS community, and more then enough hard core design to keep you amused.

One of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) email lists is reviewing relationship between OS and IP.

I am a big fan of matching license to community. While I...

ObjectAID is the first UML tool you may actually use; I know I should talk about its features or something - but the real reason you may actually use this...

I am very fond of FindBugz (indeed it has found its way into the QA process of most projects I work on....). When visiting the site to check Eclispe...

I will be using this blog a little less; it seems the vast majority of my postings are of interest to those involved in open source spatial (and Java is just the canvas I enjoy working with).

An open source mailing list I am on recently took up the interesting debate about the Merits of Maven going on in the blogosphere.

One of the advantages of being a library is that we can really be everywhere. The downside is that even if you attended the conference (wasn't it great!) you could not of managed to catch all that...

The Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial conference is ramping up and Java should be everywhere.

JSR-275 is almost ready! And there is much rejoicing to be had - but not quite yet.

In my last blog post I talked about GeoAPI and how we use it to define interfaces for a lot of the...

Someone pointed me at an interesting new project .... actually an interesting old project in new cloths.

What a silly situation performance (and benchmarks are) have put us in. As developers we really want to know how well things will perform - even if it is just so we can figure out how much...

I have had to field this question a couple times in the last week; most recently from a old GeoTools buddy by the name of Cameron. Apparently I am working on Open Location Services and he knows a...

Happy New Year!

This has been an amazing time for the open source Java community, and I thank all of you for making the last year an amazing experience.

I have never traveled so...

This is Part II of two previous articles! I like to multitask ...

GeoTools loves its interfaces - this drove me mad when I first started using the toolkit. One of the things about

Sonny Parafina recently derided the state of extent information in the free data available on the web. Let's see what can be done despite the data providers.

One of the great turning...

Open source projects live or die by contributions.

In the open-spatial Java community we have a problem: XML

I know that does not sound like much of a problem, as long as you are an XML god. Spatial data has a habit of being very large and...
