Mapping package

1,302 bytes added, 17 July
The {{Forge|mapping|mapping package}} is part of the octave-forge Octave Forge project.
== Development ==
* Maybe add wrapper functions around rasterread and rasterwrite (for e.g., geotiff, ASCII grid, etc.).
* Add more options to mapshow.
* Implement support for projections. I (current mapping pkg maintainer) have little need nor much experience with this subject => help welcome!BTW there's an OF proj package that offers some of the functionality.* Add geodesy functions. Patches have been submitted but not yet integrated(marked [7] in list below). A suggested roadmap would be to integrate Felipe Nievinsky's geodesy toolbox as an upstream dependency but that toolbox needs documentation work.
Several functions in the current mapping package release (1.2.1) haven't had much testing. Please try them out and report issues in the bug tracker with "[OFoctave forge] (mapping pkg:)" tag in the title.
=== Missing functions ===
Follows an incomplete list of stuff missing in the mapping package to be matlab compatible. Bugs are not listed here, [https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?func=search&group=octave search] and [https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?func=additem&group=octave report] them on the bug tracker instead.
As a number of polygon functions in the mapping package relate to geometry stuff, chances are that some of that lacking functionality is already present in the [http://wiki.octave.org/Geometry_package geometry package]. In fact there is a discussion about which functions belong where. Matlab compatibility suggests the mapping package, but based on similar functionality the geometry package might also be a good home. Recent mapping toolbox versions are classdef-based. It is unclear yet if we need to follow this route as classdef support in Octave is still experimental and has no file I/O. {{Note|this entire section is about current version 1.2.1; see notes below the list for dev version. If a Matlab function is missing from the list and does not appear on the current release of the package, confirm that is also missing in the [httpshttp://sourceforgehg.code.sf.net/p/octave/mapping/development file sources] , see esp. the INDEX file, before adding it.}}
