Cc: Triage Stage: Design decision needed
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no

Easy pickings: UI/UX:


I added this method for drawing polygons with lots of points on google maps. Also, it can more sense to use this when doing spatial queries where the exact boundary of your polygon doesn't matter too much.

I'm tempted to wontfix this because the equivalent may be accomplished by doing:


The get_GEOM_centroid, get_GEOM_wkt, and get_GEOM_area routines are artifacts of the pre-GEOSGeometry revisions. I'm not sure if I want to start polluting the geographic model namespace with every routine available from GEOSGeometry. However, I'm open to a convincing argument =)

  • Resolution set to wontfix

No convincing argument supplied, so I'm going to wontfix this. Further, when I get around to implementing lazy-instantiation is this will no longer be necessary.
