Bug#458424: ITP: featureserver -- A simple RESTful geographic feature web service.

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Christopher Schmidt <crschmidt@metacarta.com>

* Package name    : featureserver
  Version         : 1.11
  Upstream Author : Christopher Schmidt <crschmidt@metacarta.com>
* URL             : http://featureserver.org/
* License         : "Clear" BSD,
  Programming Lang: Python 
  Description     : A simple RESTful geographic feature web service.

FeatureServer is a pure-Python implementation of a RESTful Geographic
Feature Service. Using standard HTTP methods, onecan fetch a
representation of a feature or a collection of features, add new data to
the service, or delete data from the service. Use it as an aggregator --
post your GeoRSS feeds to it, and then browse them using WFS. Use it as
a translator: use the OGR DataSource to load a shapefile and open it in
Google Earth. Supports connecting to PostGIS and sqlite databases, any
OGR datasource, as well as a lightweight internal format with no
external dependancies. 

(Version 1.11 isn't quite released yet -- I intend to release it after
ensuring that there are no upstream changes neccesary to make debian
packaging easier, since I am upstream as well.)
