Coordinate Reference Systems, an extensive introduction

Posted by simboss on March 19, 2006

This small paper has been written by me and Daniele Romagnoli, a friend of mine who is doing his master thesis at the NATO Undersea Research Centre (NURC) in La Spezia. It aims to be an introduction to the Spatial Referencing World with special focus on ISO 19111 and OGC Topic 2 "Spatial Referencing by coordinates". It is a work in progress which was intended to be more of an exercise for writing in english. It is therefore subject to changes, additions and integrations, but we think that it could be helpful for whover is approaching Coordinate Reference Systems for the first time in the OGC-ISO context.

The paper can be downloaded here.

A blog? That is really something new! :-)

Hi all,

I m sure so many of you were constantly wondering why I was not flooding the network with my brilliant thoughts. Well, stop wondering, I finally decided to be original and start my own blog.

Seriously, I know this is not an original idea, but I think that sometimes I may have something interesting to say therefore it is a shame that I never find time to spit anything out. The network is so full of useless things that one more won’t made it worst!

By the way, this blog will be focused only on computer science related topics, I won’t talk about my own life, I won’t talk about my perversions, therefore if you are looking for that, plz, redirect yourself somewhere else.


That is it, ciao a tutti!
