+<b>GIS Platform</b>: provides a local catalog of spatial services, with minimal Dublin Core details
+supplemented with a spatial extent. Each listed item implements <b>IResolve</b> operating in a
+similar fashion to <b>IAdaptable</b> with the additional expectation of both latency and IOErrors.
+Implementations are provided to work with a range of spatial services from popular file formats,
+through to spatial databases (such as PostGIS, DB2 and Oracle) and of Open Geospaital
+Consortium web servies (Web Feature Server, Web Map Server).

+<p>
+<b>GIS Application</b> provides an EMF model for Project, Map and Layer with an implementation
+of <b>MapViewer</b> to facilitate embedding a map component in RCP apps. This forms the core
+of the example uDig application we make available to show case the SDK capabilities.
