GIS Utilities

The javaxt-gis library was developed in 2006 for a web project. Its primary purpose was to parse lat/lon coordinate tuples in text documents and to make simple maps. The library was later used in the JavaXT GeoRSS Parser to represent geographic elements such as points, lines, and polygons in RSS feeds.

If you are looking for a full feature mapping library, I suggest using GeoTools. If you just need something to represent geographic objects such as points, lines, and polygons, I suggest using the Java Topology Suite (JTS).

Key Features

  • Coordinate Parser
  • Simple Map Renderer
  • Java Classes for points, lines, polygons, multipolygons, etc.

Sample Map

Here's a sample map generated using the javaxt-gis library. It is a simple rendering of all the roads around the Caspian Sea. The map was generating using transportation layers from VMAP 1 (Library 087) from NGA. Click to enlarge.
