JCS Conflation Suite

The JCS Conflation Suite is an API and set of interactive tools which perform conflation on spatial datasets. 
JCS has the following features:
  • JCS contains functions for performing various kinds of geo-spatial conflation processes.  The major conflation problems it addresses are Coverage Cleaning, Coverage Alignment and Road Network Matching.  
  • JCS supports QA operations for detecting and visualizing errors and both automatic and manual cleaning functions to adjust geometry. 
  • JCS supplies an API providing full programmatic access to all functions
  • JCS provides manual editing tools to perform human-assisted conflation for cases which automated methods cannot solve
  • JCS is written in 100% pure JavaTM
  • JCS is open source
