The GeoScript project provides a convenient API for the Java based GeoTools library to other JVM languages. GeoScript aims to provide a relatively consistent API between different languages, preferring existing language conventions and semantics over absolute consistency. GeoScript modules can be used in existing applications or accessed via interactive shells. GeoScript does not intend to provide a complete application itself.
GeoScript has always been envisioned as an independent, vendor-neutral project. Three of the four initial GeoScript developers work at OpenGeo, and we're interested in having a common home for the project to attract outside developers and end-users. We see tremendous potential in the project; it provides extremely convenient access to powerful spatial data access, processing, and rendering functionality. We anticipate that as an Eclipse project, GeoScript will gain higher visibility and adoption, and we see GeoScript as a very good fit for the LocationTech community.
