Please join the OSGeo .NET mailing list

Hey there,

You may already know this, but we have started an OSGeo DotNET mailing list here: http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/dotnet so that all of us who are involved in developing .NET based open source GIS tools can coordinate our efforts to the degree possible (and as people are interested).

In fact, several of us on the mailing list have started thinking about putting together a common .NET namespace called "System.Spatial.xxx" where we can all work together to create common .NET tools with common API's. The MapWindow group has donated the first contribution which is a fairly complete port of Proj4 to the System.Spatial.Projections namespace.

You can find the project here: http://dotspatial.codeplex.com.

Thanks,

Dan

Gmap looks awesome by the way. Good job. Seems like it provides a lot of what we're missing in our MapWindow project as far as supporting online web mapping services. Maybe there is a way to take some of your code and pull it out into a "System.Spatial.Mapservices" type name space that people *(like me) could easily reuse to get those data sources into our other projects...

well entire GMap.NET.GMaps is something like that, but has some internal dependencies...
