As a Geometry library the foundation of JTS is the familiar point, line and polygon data structures. The true power of the library is the algorithms that drive our open source GIS industry. These JTS algorithms have been battle hardened with 18 years of real world use offering a balance between performance, computational stability that spells trust.
This talk covers new developments in the JTS library, focusing on performance improvements, and new features. We will also get an update from the development team, their experience at LocationTech, and efforts towards Java 18.9 compatibility.
We also look at what is next for JTS with plans for the future and a few wild ideas that inspire us to continue.
