Refractions Research provides support for enterprises developing applications based on uDig and GeoTools. Our staff have years of experience with practical issues in uDig development, the GeoTools library and community, and the Eclipse RCP environment:
- Bundling uDig within an existing RCP application (uDig as plugin)
- Bundling new functionality within uDig (uDig as framework)
- Geotools datastores (adding new formats and databases)
- Rendering pipelines (adding custom behavior to the uDig map)
- SWT widgets (forms, views, tables and editors in Eclipse)

The Open Geospatial Consortium runs regular “testbed” projects to field-test new concepts in geospatial interoperability. Refractions was a part of the OWS-3 initiative, and built a uDig-based “GeoDSS” client to provide access to several other OGC standard services, including a prototype GeoVideo service.
The British Columbia Ministry of Forests needed a tool to conflate multiple roads databases into a single working layer. Refractions delivered the algorithms and a user interface based on the uDig platform.
The SMART partnership supports improved law enforcement and biological monitoring in protected areas around the world. They came to Refractions to build a software tool to help meet their needs.
