This project provides a Java toolkit for geospatial applets, applications and services
Using the GeoAPI interfaces, Geotools can be implemented on OGC-based projects. It supports the following raster formats and data access: arcgrid, arcsde, geotiff, gtopo30, grassraster, image (JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF), imagemoasaic, imageio-ext-gdal, JP2K, imagepyramid, and matlab.
Geotools supports the usual OGC standards like WMS, GML, WFS, and KML, supports spatial databases, such as DB2, PostGIS/PostgreSQL, Oracle Spatial, and SQLServer, supports raster and vector like GeoTiff, World+Image, and SHP.
Geotools also features a rendering engine configured with OGC Standard Style Layer Descriptor, and referencing using the ESPG database.

What's New in This Release:
- This version brings structured grid coverage readers to allow raster data sources that publish composite data products.
- Efficient support for multiple coverages in GridCoverageReader provides ad-hoc access to raster formats that publish more that one data product.
- The transform module has graduated to supported status, providing a seamless way to rename, retype, and hide SimpleFeatureSource attributes, as well as create new ones based on OGC Expression.
- Additional OGC modules for the WCS 2.0 and WCS 2.0 EO models, as well as the addition of XML parsers and encoders.
