Jun 28, 2009 at 7:42 AM

the V2.0 branch does not have a SharpMap.Extensions folder.

in V2.0, how can I load a geotiff file?

Hi jreuben,

first: the current v2 code is at

second: there is no raster support yet in v2

Thanks for the rapid response.

Is there a schedule for planned features for SharpMap v 2.0?

Hi jreuben, There isnt currently a published roadmap - but getting one is on the roadmap ;)

A non exaustive list of our current short /medium term aims (in no particular order) include:

Getting v2 code back to codeplex.

Getting a published roadmap. Also better general communication to the community/ coding standards/ volunteer requests etc

More Unit Test coverage

Better documentation/ examples

Further work on ManagedAGG to support Outline/ Pattern / Text rasterization

Replace the SharpMap rasterizers with ManagedAGG and get rid of GDI. This quite a big change and we are hoping to pick up quite a bit of speed here.

Speed/memory profiling of key pinch points - particularly indexing

Incorporate work done on SLD back into the trunk

Incorporate changes to the Data model into the trunk - removing the reliance on System.DataTable

Getting more of the sister projects' tests passing (SharpMap v2 is much more closely aligned with v2 versions of NTS GeoAPI ProjNet)

Raster support

Implementations of more OGC service specs, WFS /WFS-T/WMS(better impl)

Matching clients/providers for the above OGC specs.

Further down the line:

Renderers for different graphics engines : WPF / Silverlight / DX
