I've been doing an informal survey of the various geo, gps, gis and
mapping modules on CPAN and while there's certainly a lot of good
stuff there, taken collectively CPAN's coverage of geospatial
functionality somewhat resembles the state of the email related
modules that provided the impetus for the Perl Email Project .
I'd like to get started with an effort to rationalise and refactor
what's currently there, providing well written, lightweight modules
with clean interfaces to cover a well defined set of geospatial
functionality - i.e. very much in the spirit of PEP.
To get the ball rolling I've created a mailing list:
I'm not looking for any particular commitment at this stage - but I'd
welcome input from anyone with an interest in this area.
 The Wiki homepage of which is currently home to a load of spam.
