JCarthema : migration of a thematic mapping application using Java GIS Toolkits
Carthema ( is an application for thematic mapping, born in Lausanne
University at the Geography Institute. Initially developped for old MacOS platform
in Pascal language, JCarThema will be the Java version of CarThema. The main
advantage of this migration will be platform independency. Carthema offers a wide
range of thematic mapping representations. JCarthema will inheritate these
functionnalities and by adopting the terms of opensource licensing, provide an
application dedicated to thematic mapping to the FOSS4G community. The project is at
its start, and one main question appears : with the usual idea in mind "not
reinventing the wheel", what toolkit/framework is appropriate ? Should we start from
scratch, use Geotools, create a plugin for uDig, OpenJUMP or gvSIG ? Therefore, this
presentation will not give you answers, but rather ask the good questions.
