IÂ believeÂ that TWKB can be something good. It can be a very fast format for moving geometries around.
My vision for TWKB is thatin 2013 it will:
- be supported in Leaflet and OpenLayers 3
- be in the trunk for relaese in PostGIS 2.2
- be supported by OGR
- have more than 5 contributors to the specification
What I have so far with TWKB is collected here. It is a github, divided in 3 parts.
First part is the specification.
Second part is the PostGIS implementation of the spec (Type 1 to 24 is implemenetd)
The last part is the web related scripts, like webserver and client-implementation
All this above is just meant as something to start the discussion from. The goal is to find a veryÂ efficient and flexible binary format for geometries.
For me myself I also hope that someone will hire or employ me so I can work with things like this on day time 🙂 I have a lot of ideas I would like to test.
