    • PostGIS only, but considering support for SpatiaLite 2.4
  • #11433: Complete support for 3D Geometries
  • #12154: OGRGeometry coordinate dimension change upon transform

PostGIS Geography Support

  • Add support for the PostGIS 1.5 geography type.

Map Widgets

  • #5472: Implement individual map widgets for geometry fields.
  • Related tickets:

    • #11002: Map widgets for databrowse

GEOS API Thread Safety

  • #10923: Use thread-safe GEOS API

GeoQuerySet Methods

  • #10594: Filter out NULL geometries
  • #11854: Add support for PostGIS ST_Azimuth
    • Also considering: ST_GeoHash, ST_ForceRHR, ST_MinimumBoundingCircle

  • #11072: Add Info Window Html to GMarker

Other Tickets and Features

These tickets/features will be considered for inclusion into GeoDjango for 1.2, but there are no guarantees as core developer time is scarce. To increase chances of being accepted, the ticket should have a patch, tests, and as much documentation as possible.


Google Maps

  • #11211: Add GMarkerOptions: clickable, bouncy, dragCrossMove, bounceGravity, autoPan and hide.
  • #11458: Add GPolylineOptions and GPolygonOptions to
