GFC library is a set of C++ classes defining basic geographic data types,
including points, lines, rectangles, circles, polylines, rings,
complex polygons, rasters, and other atomic data types such as integer,
real, varchar. GFC also features abstractions of timestamps and
time series which are useful in capturing the dynamics of spatiotemporal
data. The R-tree spatial indexing is supported through the GRtree
and related classes. Several commonly used map projections are
also provided in this library. A number of utility classes
such as GXMLProcessor (for parsing XML files which are well-suited
for transfering spatial meta data) and ESRI Shapefile reader are very
useful for writing GIS applications.
