GEOS -- Geometry Engine, Open Source
====================================

GEOS is a C++11 library for performing operations on two-dimensional vector
geometries. It is primarily a port of the [JTS Topology
Suite](https://github.com/locationtech/jts) Java library.  It provides many of
the algorithms used by [PostGIS](http://www.postgis.net/), the
[Shapely](https://pypi.org/project/Shapely/) package for Python, the
[sf](https://github.com/r-spatial/sf) package for R, and others.

More information is available the [project homepage](https://trac.osgeo.org/geos).

## Build/install

See INSTALL file

## Client applications

### Using the C interface

GEOS promises long-term stability of the C API. In general, successive releases
of the C API may add new functions but will not remove or change existing types
or function signatures. The C library uses the C++ interface, but the C library
follows normal ABI-change-sensitive versioning, so programs that link only
against the C library should work without relinking when GEOS is upgraded. For
this reason, it is recommended to use the C API for software that is intended
to be dynamically linked to a system install of GEOS.

The `geos-config` program can be used to determine appropriate compiler and
linker flags for building against the C library:

    CFLAGS += `geos-config --cflags`
    LDFLAGS += `geos-config --ldflags` -lgeos_c

All functionality of the C API is available through the `geos_c.h` header file.

Documentation for the C API is provided via comments in the `geos_c.h` header
file. C API usage examples can be found in the GEOS unit tests and in the
source code of software that uses GEOS, such as PostGIS and the sf package
for R.

### Using the C++ interface

The C++ interface to GEOS provides a more natural API for C++ programs, as well
as additional functionality that has not been exposed in the C API.  However,
developers who decide to use the C++ interface should be aware that GEOS does
not promise API or ABI stability of the C++ API between releases.  Breaking
changes in the C++ API/ABI are not typically announced or included in the NEWS
file.

The C++ library name will change on every minor release.

The `geos-config` program can be used to determine appropriate compiler and
linker flags for building against the C++ library:

    CFLAGS += `geos-config --cflags`
    LDFLAGS += `geos-config --ldflags` -lgeos

A compiler warning may be issued when building against the C++ library. To
remove the compiler warning, define `USE_UNSTABLE_GEOS_CPP_API` somewhere
in the program.

Commonly-used functionality of GEOS is available in the `geos.h` header file.
Less-common functionality can be accessed by including headers for individual
classes, e.g. `#include <geos/algorithm/distance/DiscreteHausdorffDistance.h>`.

    #include <geos.h>

Documentation for the C++ API is available at https://geos.osgeo.org/doxygen/,
and basic C++ usage examples can be found in `doc/example.cpp`.

#### Python

Python bindings are available via:

 1. [Shapely](http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Shapely)
 2. [PyGEOS](https://github.com/pygeos/pygeos)
 3. Calling functions from `libgeos_c` via Python ctypes
