Detailed Description

Contains the interfaces for converting JTS objects to and from other formats.

The Java Topology Suite (JTS) is a Java API that implements a core set of spatial data operations usin g an explicit precision model and robust geometric algorithms. JTS is intended to be used in the devel opment of applications that support the validation, cleaning, integration and querying of spatial data sets.

JTS attempts to implement the OpenGIS Simple Features Specification (SFS) as accurately as possible. In some cases the SFS is unclear or omits a specification; in this case JTS attempts to choose a reaso nable and consistent alternative. Differences from and elaborations of the SFS are documented in this specification.
