GeoTools is a GIS toolkit that is used for OGC-based projects via GeoAPI interfaces. It includes two great SLD based renderers and tools for raster access and reprojection as well as plugins for Shapefile, ArcGrid, ArcSDE, Postgis, OracleSpatial, MySQL, and many more.


This release brings structured grid coverage readers to allow raster data sources that publish composite data products. Efficient support for multiple coverages in GridCoverageReader provides ad-hoc access to raster formats that publish more that one data product. The transform module has graduated to supported status, providing a seamless way to rename, retype, and hide SimpleFeatureSource attributes, as well as create new ones based on OGC Expression. Additional OGC modules for the WCS 2.0 and WCS 2.0 EO models, as well as the addition of XML parsers and encoders.
