Proposal: Put providers in a separate assembly

Jul 1, 2012 at 3:17 PM

At the MapWindow conference last week we discussed various options on how our C# open source GIS projects could better be integrated (DotSpatial, SharpMap, DeltaShell, Mapsui).

One step is to all start using GeoAPI/NTS.

The second step I see is to move the providers that are now in the SharpMap assembly to a separate assembly (SharpMap.Providers). This should also include the interfaces involved. That way the providers can be reused in those other projects. This will be a real benefit to those projects. And with more projects using and committing to the same code this will improve the quality. 

This change should be made after releasing 1.0.

I finally managed to create a nuget package for gdal/ogr, even one that suits both x86 and x64. Some more tests and I'll release it.
