Description : classes for working with geometric types in postgresql/postgis
A package of classes for working with geometric types in postgres.
The package contains two collections of classes:
* The first were designed for use with the geometric functions
supported by Postgresql (http://www.postgresql.com) although
they do not need Postgresql to be present for them to be used.
The types implemented are those listed in the Postgresql
documentation at http://www.postgresql.org/docs/7.3/static/datatype-geometric.html
with the exception of 'line' which, as the documentation is says,
is 'not fully implemented yet'.
* The second were designed for use with the PostGIS/OpenGIS
extensions to postgres. All these classes begin with "OG" so
as to avoid name clashed with the standard postgres types.
