Above-cited methods will not be ported to Apache SIS, both for IP reasons and because SIS-385 and SIS-386 suggests that another code should be used anyway. The remaining of GeodeticCalculator class is covered by the IP review listed in this page. Click on the commit message for inspecting the diff and how the code has been rewritten.

Rev. Date Author Message
307602008-06-18desruisseauxUpgrated from JSR-108 to JSR-275 (GEOT-1266). Some opportunist javadoc fixes and @Override annotations in the process.
306412008-06-12acusterCopyright headers: lib/referencing, this time with feeling (and the el in Toolkit)
305212008-06-05acusterCopyright: Update referencing headers
302582008-05-08acusterReshuffle the top level repo: drop uDig, move up trunk, tags, and branches.
302572008-05-08acusterMove trunk/gt/ directory contents up to trunk/ and drop gt
289222008-01-24acusterBump the (at)since version to 2.5 since WKTParser was cut from 2.4
287512008-01-14desruisseauxAttempt to make the GeodeticCalculator slightly more resistant to antipodal case (at least for orthodromic distance).
285402007-12-29acusterHide buttons which are not yet used
280812007-11-27desruisseauxJava 5 constructs: replaced some StringBuffer by StringBuilder in order to avoid unecessary synchronisation; rely on auto-boxing in order to give a chance to the JVM to reuse its cached values.
275752007-10-22desruisseauxConverted Java source files from ISO-LATIN-1 encoding to UTF-8 (GEOT-1516).
249252007-03-27jgarnettchange to org.opengis.geometry
224522006-10-28desruisseauxMoved some methods from CRSUtilities to CRS (GEOT-547).
223272006-10-23desruisseauxGEOT-982: regroup 'module', 'plugin', 'ext' and 'unsupported' in a common directory.
223152006-10-22desruisseauxReorganisation of directory tree structure (GEOT-982) phase 1: moved 'src' to 'src/main/java'.
221132006-10-13desruisseauxJavadoc fixes (include the replacement of {@linkPlain} tag by {@linkplain} - case matter).
217802006-10-03desruisseauxRemoved methods from the referencing module that were deprecated in Geotools 2.3. This imply the replacement of 'CRS.transform' by 'CRS.findMathTransform' in the whole Geotools code base.
215642006-09-23desruisseauxProvide a BufferedCoordinateOperationFactory as a replacement of BufferedDefaultCoordinateOperationFactory. The new implementation work as a wrapper around an arbitrary CoordinateOperationFactory instead of extending DefaultCoordinateOperationFactory. This is especially important since the actual backing factory doesn't need to be DefaultCoordinateOperationFactory, but can also be a AuthorityBackedFactory. The new implementation is automatically registered for FactoryFinder use, so users doesn't need to create instance of it explicitly.

199592006-06-14desruisseauxCRS.decode(String code, boolean longitudeFirst) now work. Also fixed GEOT-856.
197692006-06-02desruisseauxJavadoc fix: replaced 'degrees' by 'decimal degrees' when relevant (GEOT-855)
187762006-03-22desruisseauxCRS.getEnvelope(...) returns an envelope in terms of the specified CRS instead of WGS84 (GEOT-825). AbstractFactory.hints type downgrated from 'Hints' to Map, in order to accept null values as specified in Factory.getImplementationHints() contract. PostgreSQL dependency upgrated.
