And, of course, thanks to everybody else at Boost.Geometry who was involved in the project selection.

We had very good proposals this year and the selection was very difficult.
Congrats @tinko92 !
Thank you all for your proposals, discussions and contributions.

Congratulations!
@tinko92 Boost.Geometry is an intimidating piece of software (it is to me!) and it does not stop you to keep ploughing. I want to say, you're an exceptional contributor.

Is strategy necessary when differentiating between CSs because in the plotly extension I don't see a reason to keep strategies and not make the decision internally everytime. Is there some other reason why strategy is used other than letting user make the choice?

Hi there, I am developer of the project preCICE.
We are currently writing our next major reference paper and would like to cite our dependencies to give them the credit they deserve. This paper will be the goto citation for quite some time.
We use boost.geometry especially for the spacial index trees.
How should we cite your project?

@mloskot
@fsimonis I don't see any guide on this. It may be a good idea to open an issue on GitHub
Frédéric Simonis
@fsimonis
@mloskot will do.

@tinko92
Misunderstandings with regard to the meaning of spatial predicates seem to be a recurring thing (just today there was one on the mailing list again). @awulkiew Do you think it may be beneficial to have the DE-9IM masks and little illustrations of valid and invalid spatial relationships in the documentation? After GSoC I would have time to generate some images that could illustrate the spatial relationships.
Mateusz Łoskot
@mloskot
@tinko92 This is something I had in mind for very long time. Something like the PostGIS docs have.
tinko92
@tinko92
I see. Then I will try to make a PR later in the year after GSoC. I believe with the great SVG-Mapper generating the graphics should be easy, but it's probably worth it to give some thought to making particularly instructive illustrations (it would probably be good to have examples for which the predicates return true and some for which they do not return true).
Mateusz Łoskot
@mloskot
Yes, my idea was to have collection of programs run as part of CI job (so they are validated) and producing the graphics for the documentation.

Hi everybody! I am Ramneek Singh ,currently in 2nd year of CSE . It's been 7 messed up days looking, how to get started to contribute to Boost community as beginner can find a way. Hope someone helps me out to get out of this mess, thanks

https://www.boost.org/users/faq.html 5th question
and general how to contribute to open source apply https://opensource.guide/how-to-contribute/
If you have specific questions, ask on https://lists.boost.org/mailman/listinfo.cgi/boost
tinko92
@tinko92
Also, note that there is a label called "good first issue" which you can filter for on the Boost.Geometry issue list: https://github.com/boostorg/geometry/labels/good-first-issue
I also found the Boost.Geometry Contribution tutorial helpful for a specific guide for contributing a piece of code: https://github.com/boostorg/geometry/wiki/Contribution-Tutorial

@RkSinghDeo
@mloskot @tinko92 is my basic C++ DS and Algo is enough to contribute and understand code??
i was looking forward to contribute in Boost for GSOC if anyone can give contact to help me get started it will be bliss for me
Mateusz Łoskot
@mloskot
@RkSinghDeo Such question if C++ DS and Algo is enough is impossible to answer.
There are people with PhD who may have problems and people with no degree who can see all details clear :-)
Just dive in, start reading the code, start using/running it, and you will see yourself
If you want to start contributing, @tinko92 's suggestion to look for the good first issues is an excellent one
Regarding Boost for GSoC, you're welcome to submit a project for GSoC 2021
Just remember to start discussing it as early as possible, e.g. near December
Meanwhile, getting started with Boost Geometry is a great ideae

@shubham00jain If you browsed the boostorg/geometry issues, you'd have found the label named good-first-issue

Do you think it may be beneficial to have the DE-9IM masks and little illustrations of valid and invalid spatial relationships in the documentation?

Our documentation consistently needs improvement. Boost is more or less infamous for bad docs. So if you have some free time and want to add something I'd gladly review it.

Hey everyone. Can someone tell me how can I explore this GGL a little before making any contribution? Also I want to know what exactly is this B2?
Thanks in advance!
Mateusz Łoskot
@mloskot
Read the code and read the docs, experiment.
b2 is executable program of Boost.Build, a build system that use used by libraries of the Boost C++ Libraries collection
