I forgot to add this in the review:


Spatial indexes are very important. What is the plan ? (I saw the
brief mention in your paper). I also saw complaints about the bad
quality of the SOC project code.

I found an r-tree implementation that is part of a thesis and asked
the author if he would be willing to donate the code (if it made

Also, most mentions to indexes are memory indexes. Are there any
solutions for persistent spatial indexes ? maybe by interfacing to an
external library

Do you see state-of-the-art c++ libraries like mapnik potentially
using GGL, instead of their abstractions ?


It would be nice to have at least one example that also uses GIL (a
plus would be simple label placement with GIL + Freetype)
